Agree. I'm just saying it might not be visually super clear looking at the board when is the actual deadline when you can cross the line to start your last flying lapChanging the requirement to "you must finish your last lap by the end of minute 9 or 17" would be a problem for a lot of tracks but certainly for Le Mans, where you would only get one flying lap: an outlap of 4+ mins and lap of 3:45-3:50 leaves no time to finish another lap in the alloted 9mins, and also specifically for Le Mans would mean the Pro class get an extra lap over the other classes because open quali has a time extension at the end.
I think the format is fine as it is now, if you start your last lap with even 1 second remaining there's still no way you can influence the outlap of the next class because you will still be quite far ahead of them.
