Race Director FIA’s Charlie whiting said that in the eve of the season-2018 on the racing tracks of the world championship Formula 1 has done a great work to prevent trips outside of the track for the purpose of receiving benefits.
“Almost all the tracks we close to a solution to this problem, – quotes Whiting publishing RaceFans. In Austin, where last year outside of the track left by Max Verstappen, we, of course, install curbs. There are several borders in the last and first turns.
If you remember, in 2016 in Mexico city Lewis Hamilton cut the first corner, but now, after the measures taken, such will be simply impossible.
Of course, there are still some issues. For example, in Abu Dhabi last year Nico Hulkenberg cut the track, got a five-second penalty and still remained ahead. This is something that we still need to work”.
