Thank you, that all makes sense. It wasn't clear from the highlights we had if JW was actually the leader once the others had pitted or if there were still others in front.

Regarding the SC coming out, potential danger should be irrelevant. All cars should slow to the point where it is safe anyway, and having done so the SC can be released as the leader crosses the line. The difficulty with that is cars racing back to the pits, therefore it is better to close the pits until a line has formed behind the SC. That last is not currently the rule, however, so there is an incentive to get to pit lane as quickly as possible which creates both difficulty and danger. The alternative is a FCY/Code 60/80 type rule which enforces a maximum speed (Possibly controlled by limiter) once the boards are displayed.
