I added my central video https://youtu.be/0Z1T_66h15Q
At 13;38 the yellow is out at S/F.
At 13:40 the double yellow is out at T-1 and Hingston is passing Chuck Mathis
At 13:51 Perona passes me going into T-1. I was told that this was called in by the corner crew working T-1 but no action was taken.

As I watched Perona's in-car it was obvious to me that he didn't see the yellow and after passing a couple people realized that everyone was going slow for a reason. I bet it was going through his mind, what if I give those spots back, will they give me a pass? Then he got a pass on it anyway.

But I have to wonder, because everyone has found themselves in this position where they didn't see the flag and passed someone inadvertently under yellow, can you give the spots back and be good with the stewards? I know they had a rule like that going into T1 at Indy, if you took the short cut and passed someone you could let them back by without a penalty.

Lin passed Hingston under yellow at 10..

OK, I will let you decide base on this video. https://youtu.be/c3boRt812zc at 10-13 sec the yellow is visible.

In Bill's own words:

...we battled down to the entrance of 10 where I passed just as the double yellow was coming out. I immediately pointed you back by, Im sure had I not pointed you back by I may have gotten talked to...

I find this "give back" dangerous as it seems to give some people the impression I passed under yellow (and we almost had contact).


Yep that makes sense. I was standing at 10, and didn't have the additional context.
