Flaggen & Lichtzeichen

During the course of a Grand Prix, flags and warning lights are used to advise and warn the riders, providing them with critical information about the race.

Die Flaggen werden von den Streckenposten an verschiedenen Punkten um die Strecke gezeigt und die Fahrer müssen immer genau wissen, was diese Flaggen, die ihnen gezeigt werden, bedeuten. Alle Flaggen werden geschwenkt gezeigt.

Missachtet ein Fahrer diese Flaggensignale, so können je nach Schwere des Vergehens die folgenden Strafen ausgesprochen werden: Verwarnung, Geldstrafe, Durchfahrtsstrafe (siehe auch: Wichtigste Regeln), Positions-Änderung im Rennen (siehe auch: Gelbe Flagge), Zeitstrafe, Disqualifikation, Abzug von Meisterschafts-Punkten, Sperre oder Ausschluss.

Schwarze Flagge

Disqualification. Waved at each flag marshal post together with the rider's number, the black flag means the rider must stop at the pits at the end of the current lap - and cannot restart. This flag will be presented only after the rider's team has been notified. The rider has 5 laps to pull in to the pit lane.

Schwarze Flagge mit Orangenem Punkt

This flag informs the rider that their motorcycle has mechanical problems, which are likely to endanger themselves or others, and they must immediately leave the track.

Weiße Flagge

Waved at the flag marshal post only during a MotoGP™ race, this flag indicates that the riders are allowed to change machine. Race Direction indicates through the white flag that the track is wet enough to justify the change of bikes and the Grand Prix becomes a wet race, having originally been declared a ‘dry race’ at the start

Weiße Flagge mit diagonalen roten Kreuzen und gelb-rot-gestreifte Flagge

Regen auf diesem Streckenabschnitt (an den Positionen der Streckenposten geschwenkt gezeigt) – diese Flaggenkombination gibt dem Fahrer lediglich an, dass die Strecke nass ist, weil Regen eingesetzt hat.

Blaue Flagge

Shown waved at the flag marshal post, this flag indicates to a rider that they are about to be overtaken and they must allow the rider(s) following to pass at the earliest opportunity. During practice sessions, the rider concerned must keep their line and slow down gradually to allow the faster rider to pass. During the race, the rider shown the blue flag is about to be lapped. Also, this flag is shown to a rider leaving the pit lane if traffic is approaching on the track.

Checkered Flag

This flag should be waved at the finish line on track level to indicate the finish of a race or practice session. The race winner is the first rider to reach this flag as they cross the line.

Gelbe Flagge

Shown waved at each row of the starting grid, this flag indicates that the start of the race is delayed. Shown waved on one row of the starting grid, this flag indicates that a rider on that row is having difficulties. Shown waved at the flag marshal post, this flag indicates that there is a danger ahead beside the track. Two Yellow Flags shown waved at the flag marshal post indicate there is a danger ahead either partly or wholly blocking the track. The riders must slow down and be prepared to stop. Overtaking is forbidden up until the point where the green flag is shown.

Any infringement of this rule during a practice session will result in the cancellation of the lap time during which the infraction occurred. In case of infringement of this rule during the race, the rider must go back the number of positions decided by the Race Direction.

Auf der Besichtigungsrunde muss diese Flagge von den Streckenposten genau dort geschwenkt werden, wo sie sich während der Trainings, des Warmups und des Rennens befinden werden.

Rote Flagge & rote Ampel/Lichtsignale

When the race or practice is interrupted, the red flag will be waved at each flag marshal post and the red lights around the track will be switched on. Riders must return slowly to the pits. When the pit-lane exit is closed, this flag will be shown motionless at the pit-lane exit and the light will be switched on. Riders are not allowed to exit the pit lane.

Rote Ampel

Race Start. The red lights will be switched on at the start line for between two and five seconds to start each race. 'The lights go out' is therefore a favourite phrase for commentators to indicate that a race has started, as this is the signal to riders that racing has begun.

Am Ende jeder Trainingssession und des Warm-Ups wird auf der Ziellinie ein rotes Licht eingeschaltet.

Grüne Ampel

This light must be switched on at the pit lane exit to signal the start of each practice session and Warm Up, the start of the sighting laps and the warm up lap.

Grüne Flagge

The track is clear. This flag must be waved at each flag marshal post for the first lap of each practice session and Warm Up, for the sighting lap(s) and for the warm up lap. This flag must be waved by the starter to signal the start of the warm up lap. When the pit-lane exit is open, this flag must be waved at the pit-lane exit.

Direkt hinter einer Gefahrenstelle bedeutet die geschwenkt gezeigte grüne Flagge, dass die Gefahr, die vorher durch eine oder mehrere gelbe Flaggen angezeigt wurde, vorüber ist.
