Minor changes at Silverstone

NEWS STORY
02/07/2014

Ahead of this year's British Grand Prix, the FIA reveals only a couple of minor changes to the Silverstone circuit, one of the oldest on the calendar.

As the Northamptonshire prepares to host a round of the Formula One World Championship for the 50th time, a landmark which will be celebrated in a series of parades featuring previous winners (both drivers and cars) of the event, the FIA has revealed that artificial grass has been removed from the exits of Turns 5, 8 and 9.

While the wall to the driver's left before Turn 6 has been extended, drainage has also been improved at a number of places around the circuit.

There will be two DRS zones this weekend. The detection point of the first is 25m before Turn 3, with the activation point 30m after Turn 5, while the second detection point is at Turn 11 with the activation point 55m after Turn 14.
