Good morning, Pilots!
Great race, and congratulations to all!... Congrats for the winners!
I'd like to re-post my last comment about blue flag on Indianapolis, and this time it appears very good to me, the blue flag is showed up when the fastest drivers is closer enough for let them pass creating a good conditions to be lapped without loose too much time, and let them pass in a good circumstances and better session of the track.
Thank you and best regards,

I was punished twice with drive thru penalty, because of a blue flag, and I'd like to ask for all who overtaken me on blue flag, if I made you lost time.
I always let me overtaken on a best point of the track, on straights and using DRS... In slow speed curves and on difficult points where reduces the speed could be dangerous for both, I try avoid reduces the speed and keep the normal speed, except if I committed a small mistake, that I will create a dangerous situation, in this case, I just stayed out of the track.

When I see a fasted driver approaching, like and example on this race, I let Argenis Riera overtake me without fight, and I should defend my position, but it would be a nonsense, and I could cause an unnecessary incident, or cause delay for both, or finish the both race, because he would overtake me anyway.
On this bases, I'd like to know how it works, when and how I need to let overtaken me on blue flag to avoid this kind of unfair punishment, if the driver did not lost time.
Thank you and best regards, "
