VIDEO: Supermodel's blunder cuts Canada GP short

Sunday, 10 juny 2018, 16:01 , by Matthew Scott

The Canadian Grand Prix was cut short a lap after supermodel Winnie Harlow waved the chequered flag too soon! Sebastian Vettel won the race, but radioed his team on his final lap in disappointment after Harlow waved the flag to his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen as he started his final lap.

    At first I was confused and thought that the board showed the wrong Lap Number.. then I realised the blunder was the official's fault. When I saw it was a supermodel, I knew it had to be her fault!

    Who is asshole ?! By the way, instead of waving he was fixing his hair! I've always had the idea that celebrities in F1 should be inside an electrified fence (not too big) inside the pits.

    She would have been told to wave it when the first place car came round. Only to take that literally and wave the flag for the first car that came round.

    Why is some model waving a checkered flag , just another step backwards for F1 thanks to liberty, hate to say this but I miss Bernie

    Unless it's part of a "make a wish" event for a terminally ill kid etc, no one except proper race officials should be anywhere near flags.

    Any time celebrities get involved nothing good comes of it. Just let them sit in their suites and try and look interested.

    Race wasn't cut short. She waved the flag a lap early, but the race continued until all 70 laps were completed.

    Was retarded idea to put someone who doesn’t know anything about F1 to wave a single flag. Lul
  • Daniel Tee Atkinson
    Ya ok. World Championship racing should use “super”models for flag officials. Makes perfect sense.
  • John Hutchinson
    I assume the poor girl has excema ??? As for "Super Model" is that term getting a bit overused these days?
  • Fernando Cucatti
    If you put them together, they might give the checkered flag in the right moment!
