johnh875 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A couple of issues with that, firstly Whincup was ahead of McLaughlin et al on track so from what I can tell from the timing the SC was sent out before McLaughlin pitted. The lap 14 pitters were never overtaken by the cars behind the SC (just JW).

I'd be astonished if the SC crew didn't radio about JW overtaking them, let alone all the other camera angles available to them. They said they intended to wave the lap 12 pitters around, which was necessary because they were almost a lap down.

I used to hold a view similar to what race control showed here, ie get the SC out and then worry about sorting out the order later, and I still do for situations where there is rescue intervention required, but the position loss suffered by the lap 12 pitters here is not justified for a simple car recovery presenting no danger.

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.
