Brake red lights

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, why there are no red lights on the back of the cars in front of me when they brake? This would help avoid lots of collisions as you would be aware if the driver in front of you is braking, especially in turn 1 or safety car situations. Am I missing something and-or I am the only one that would need this feature?

The short answer is because real F1 cars don't.

The red blinking lights you see on the back of real F1 are not brake lights. They're ERS lights and light up when the MGU-K is harvesting IIRC.

Yeah, it's basically a warning light. I assume it can also be turned on as a regular light when vision is very poor.
