Explaining the flag’s return to prominence in his own post-race appearance at the SkyPad in Sky F1’s coverage at Monza, FIA race director Michael Masi said the change had come in the”petition” from drivers and teams.
“Beneath the’let’s race’ doctrine that the teams, the F1 Group, the motorists and the FIA have worked together on throughout the calendar year, and giving the teams that the guidance at the previous event in Spa, we’ll be using the black and white flag more frequently,” said Masi.
That is certainly the goal. Amid a broad desire for motorists to be encouraged to race wheel to wheel without the fear of race-changing and officialdom penalties, Masi has indicated the black flag will become commonplace
“For smaller infringements that are, let’s call it, a’professional foul’ but don’t go past the line, we will be absolutely utilizing the black-and-white flag and longer,” supported F1’s race manager.

Charles Leclerc:”I think since Austria it’s clear that we are able to go a bit farther in the manner that we defend and overtake… I feel that Austria helped me to alter this strategy. It was obviously quite on-the-limit but… yeah, I’m delighted to race such as this.”
Lewis Hamilton:”If that is how we’re permitted to race then I shall race like that. So long as we all know that you are allowed to not leave a car width as an example, as long as you aren’t currently contradicting us and there is a message. Thus you’re allowed to run broad even if someone is there and you only receive a warning sign, and you simply require that to possibly keep the man behind you.”
Sky F1’s Martin Brundle:”It was tough to call [at Monza], and I’m really supportive of the’let’s race’ philosophy so long as it is consistent and the motorists don’t take liberties and spoil it all.”
Sky F1’s Karun Chandhok:”I really enjoy the concept of this black-and-white warning flag from Michael Masi also it was a fantastic choice not to break up the struggle but only warn Charles that he would not get away with such a robust defence on a regular basis.”
