There's essentially no radio communication for the F-1 racers. Even if they have radio equipment on board, the sound is static at best. At the start, hand signals and flags are used. This was just a worst case scenario, where the ill-fated timing was just right, Thom's plane quit, and the green flag was on it's way down. Wasn't enough time to get everyone on the same page.
Maybe we'll see the procedures change a bit for next year?
In the meantime.. Team Hot Stuff is traveling abroad for another race!
Glad everyone was ok!
