Formula 1 governing body finally allowed doughnut celebration following the race are the winner of a Formula 1 race.
The German news source reported that, FIA officially permitted doughnut celebration after race, by the regulations under certain conditions.
Many motor-sports series allowed donuts, are an essential ceremony of a race winner. Rotate in a circle the car with spinning wheels on the spot – so are regularly celebrated race winner in NASCAR and other some auto sports.
Last year world champion Sebastian Vettel was punished, when he established fourth successive title in Indian GP, the world champion at the time his car shuts off on the start-finish straight, and not in the Parc Ferme. 25,000 euro fine and a caution was the result.
This is this season is no longer necessary because current version of the sporting regulations are donuts or similar rituals now explicitly allowed under certain circumstances. Latest 2014 F1 sporting regulations were published. Under Article 43.3 it now reads: “After receiving the end-of-race signal all cars must proceed on the circuit directly to the post race parc fermé without any unnecessary delay, without receiving any object whatsoever and without any assistance (except that of the marshals if necessary).
“An exception… to the above will be made for the winning driver who may perform an act of celebration before reaching parc fermé, provided any such act:
a) Is performed safely and does not endanger other drivers or any officials.
b) Does not call into question the legality of his car.
c) Does not delay the podium ceremony.”
For this, however, the following requirements apply: The safety of other drivers and officials must not be affected, the legality of the car must not be questioned, and the podium ceremony should not be delayed. Vettel and Co. may therefore carefree celebrate their victories this season – if they still have it enough fuel in the tank.
