Oil on the track and inexperienced drivers - or colour blind?

Yellow flags and people still overdriving the corner? Is there another corner before that so they can't see the flags or something?

There were complaints from the Seat Team regarding the slow marshalls.
After Barth's crash, took a while for the marshalls to extract the driver and deploy fire extinguisher.

Probably the first yellow flag showed before the corner was on the braking zone - where drivers committed to overtake already.

Also the track is very green, where they only had one Grand Prix race a year.

I have never seen a slower rescue crew. Were the safety crew even trained or certified before Macau was even considered a race track? If I were the drivers, I would be very weary of racing at that location knowing the fact that it literally took the safety crew over 40 seconds to arrive, and additional 30 seconds after to find a fire extinguisher. That is absolutely unacceptable.

Yes - however, get there any sooner and you get hit by a no talent racer...

Wow, that's insane. No reason why people should still be crashing 20 seconds after the first incident.

That is a shame.... courses like this are entertaining to watch, but I would be the first to admit, I would never even do a track day on something without proper run off. all it takes is for one person to crash, and then the domino effect....

Also don't understand why we haven't gone to some sort of L.E.D. system on corners, instead of relying on people manually waving flags.

I'm not sure about Macau, but FIA now mandate Formula 1 to have LED signboards to go hand in hand with track marshals to wave flags.

Don't people have radios in the car? I can't believe how fast they entered that corner after the flags were waiving!
