One race, two chequered flags: Vettel blasts Canadian GP gaffe

  One race, two chequered flags: Vettel blasts Canadian GP gaffe Sebastian Vettel revealed Sunday that he was concerned about the dangers of a possible track invasion when the chequered flag was waved prematurely before he won the Canadian Grand Prix. The flag was waved by model Winnie Harlow who said she was just "following instructions", but it meant the result of the race was decided by the positions at the end of lap 68 instead of lap 70.Vettel said he realised what had happened on the penultimate lap and sent a radio message to try and help avoid confusion.

Formula 1 chief Ross Brawn has apologised to model Winnie Harlow and says she was an "innocent victim" from the Canadian GP flag controversy.

Canadian model Winnie Harlow was handed the flag by race officials and started signalling the end of the race on the 69th lap. Asked if he saw a future in F 1 next season he added: “We will see, I hope so, we definitely need to find more performance, we need to find a way to be more competitive.

Formula 1 chief Ross Brawn has apologised to model Winnie Harlow and says she was an "innocent victim" from the Canadian GP flag controversy.

Harlow, a friend of Lewis Hamilton, waved the chequered flag a lap too early in Montreal but has since been cleared of blame, with FIA race director Charlie Whiting saying the mistake was a result of "simple miscommunication".

Brawn said: "Supermodel Winnie Harlow was an innocent victim at the end of the race.

"She was asked to wave the chequered flag, but was told to do so after 69 of the 70 laps had been completed."

The FIA, Formula 1's governing body, says it will review procedures after the error - which did not have an impact on the race result - but Brawn was not happy with the criticism the celebrity guest received on social media.

"I was sad to see her so heavily criticised when, as race director Charlie Whiting explained, it was all down to a misunderstanding between two officials," added Brawn.

"Winnie simply followed the instructions she was given and I want to apologise for the grief she received and thank her for supporting Formula 1."

Brawn said F1 want to open up the sport "to a new audience" and that they can achieve part of that process by bringing celebrities into the paddock.

"Something similar happened in China in 2014, but in that instance, it wasn't a celebrity waving the flag," he explained.

"As the saying goes, 'to err is human' and all of us - drivers, managers, engineers, mechanics, journalists, and fans - make mistakes. The important thing is to learn from them and try to prevent them happening again in the future.
