The Formula 1 race was found itself in an awkward situation when Canadian model Winnie Harlow waved the checkered flag before the race actually was supposed to end.

When the flag was waved early, a frustrated Vettel was worried that people would run onto the track with racers still driving at full speed. He said via eveningexpress.co.uk:

"I told my team on the last lap so people would not jump on the track to celebrate. Some of the marshals were already celebrating. They peaked a bit early."

Harlow would post on Instagram that race officials mistakenly told her to wave the checkered flag before the race had ended.

WHEN THEY TELL YOU TO WAVE THE FLAG A LAP TOO EARLY! You had one job sir!!! Hahaha but so grateful everyone was safe today and no one got hurt! @f1 ✨
