Moto GP and all you need to know (Part 4)

Black Flag 

Waving black flags means that the rider must stop at the holes at the end of the current lap-and cannot restart. This flag will be waived only after the driver’s team has been notified. The driver has five laps to pull on the lane. 

Black flag with orange rings 

This flag informs the driver that their vehicle has a mechanical problem, that they are likely to put themselves or others at risk, and that they must leave the track immediately.

White Flag

Wave your hand at the flag position only during the MotoGP TM race, this flag indicates that the driver is allowed to change the engine. Race Direction said through the white flag that the track was wet enough to prove that the change in the car was legal and that the Grand Prix turned into a wet race, initially declared a dry race at the start. 

The white flag has a red cross and a red and yellow flag. 

Rain on this stretch (waving at the referee flagpole)-this flag combination simply suggests to the rider that the track is wet as it began to rain.

Green Flag 

Waved at the position of the flag judge, this flag tells the driver that they are about to be overtaken and must allow the next driver to pass at the earliest opportunity. During the practice sessions, the drivers involved must hold on and slow down gradually to allow the driver to pass faster. The driver shows that the blue flag is about to be placed during the race. In addition, this flag is shown to allow the driver to leave the pit lane when the traffic is approaching the track. 


This flag must be waved at the finish line of the track level to indicate the end of the race or training session

The winner of the race is the first driver to reach the flag when they cross the finish line.
