Terry S should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Why is it called the "formation lap"?

It intrigues me that the cars come out and are lined up on the grid in starting order, or "formation".

Then they go off on a lap most commonly called "formation lap". But they were already in formation on the grid.

So why is it called a formation lap?
