Richard Branson hates blue flags... and you know what? So do I.

Richard Branson says to do away with blue flags. This crazy brit may be onto something.

"If it's really hard for a world champion to get past a backmarker then I think it's a sad day for racing. I think racing is all about getting past people and overtaking and adding a little bit of 'je ne sais quoi'.

Maybe more of a sad day for that champion.  His point is that the slower teams are forced to start to make room earlier than they should and because they are required to let that car past within four turns, they practically have to stop in order to let some of the back markers catch up.  

I never thought about it before but now that I have, I think blue flags are stupid.
