Model at Montréal Grand Prix Flashes Checkered Flag Too Early
Share this article
Friends don't let friends do stuff they've never done before.
It doesn't explain how some bright light handed her the ultimate racing flag without giving detailed instructions.
Like, wait for the last lap before you wave this.
That would've been at the end of Lap 70, not the beginning.
Car No 5 is the prematurely proclaimed victor, Sebastian Vettel.
Frankly, the only way dude was gonna lose with a lap left woulda been if Godzilla showed up outta nowhere, looking for a lost golf ball or something.
So damn near everyone got a chuckle out of the faux pas.
That would not include Daniel Ricciardo, who got roached outta bonus money for fastest lap.
WATCH: @DanielRicciardo’s face when he finds out his fastest lap didn’t count because of the early chequered flag and that it went to @Max33Verstappen 😮😮😮— Sky Sports F1 🏎 (@SkySportsF1) June 10, 2018
Poor Daniel 😂😂😂

Gotta wonder what's next in the racing world after this incident and the pace car crash last weekend at the IndyCar circuit's Detroit Grand Prix.
Believe it or not, an exec from General Motors was driving it.
It appears there's more to this car racing thing than just flooring it.
As to flag waving, whatever happened to taking pride in one's job?
Wrong dude to ask.
