Changes to start light sequence

I'm going to suggest a change to the start light sequences in online races.

This concerns the 2D lights that pop up when sat on the grid.

The pop up disappears and then re-appears when the start sequence kicks in.

Would it be possible to not have it appear at all, as I've seen a few jump starts when the helper disappears rather than when the start lights go out.

Instead of that maybe have a Marshall hold a red flag 20m further Infront of the grid or something, and then when he disappears have the light helper come on?

This could reduce the confusion, and add some extra realism, as the light units only come on irl during the start sequence, the red flagger holds the grid prior.

Great idea.
Thank you for the suggestion.
