This is what Beaux Barfield said a week ago.
“Forming a good start is up to me, and what happens with the group when the green flag is waved, Turn 1, Turn 3, that’s up to the drivers. I empower them as such, respect them as such and give them that responsibility. If it’s not achieved the way I expect it to and how the fans expect it to, then appropriate action will be taken.”
Did anyone see any appropriate action taken? Look, it was the first race and Barfield has a thankless job. But when you're on record about how things are gonna change and nothing happens, its makes me think it was nothing but talk. Ernest
Of all the street courses, St Pete should be easy to form up the field. It's a friggin airport runway. Move the s/f line closer to turn 1 if need be, or widen the part they paved to form the last turn so the field can get lined up along the last straight and maintain it through the turn. Even if they go single file on restarts, hold the yellow until the leader actually reaches the s/f line.
Long beach is clearly the worst and they simply need to delay the greens.
