yellowbeard should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The way I see it is that the pass was legal but extremely ungentlemanly, if I was on the grid I wouldn't be doing him any favours on track in future

I don't think Butcher even saw the yellow flag. He seemed quite shocked when Ingram said there was one out in the post race interview.

It seems very black and white (or yellow) - overtaking is not permitted from the point you pass a yellow flag until the point you pass a green flag.

Butcher and Ingram had not passed the yellow flag when the overtake was made, so no regulations were breached.

I wouldn't even call it ungentlemanly - it's a sport, and if another driver makes a mistake in their understanding of the regulations that is their issue.

Any racing driver who lifts in a race before he gets to the actual point on the track where a yellow is displayed is a total numpty who shouldn’t have a licence, as he clearly doesn’t know the rules.

I wouldn't be so harsh about Ingram but if rules are clear about waving yellow flag being sort of a 'border' than just seeing it in the distance doesn't mean a driver is already in the zone. Same with Safety Car. I feel sorry for Ingram but don't think Butcher was wrong.
