NEWS STORY
08/10/2015

The FIA has confirmed a number of changes to the Sochi track ahead of this weekend's Russian Grand Prix.

First off, the additional kerbs, behind the main kerbs, on the apex of Turns 2 and 13, have been lowered to 80mm above track level.

Also, a combination kerb 50mm higher than the existing kerb has been installed behind the kerb on the exit of Turn 2, while bollards and lines in the Turn 2 run-off will guide cars to a point where they may rejoin the track.

Additional small overlaps for driver egress, similar to those elsewhere, have been provided on the driver's left around Turn 3, while openings for cars have been provided in the walls behind the apex of Turns 4 and 5.

Finally, the TecPro barrier around the exit of T8 has been extended and the wall on the driver's right in the pit entry has been removed.

"I'm still of the opinion that the best change to Sochi would be to make it go away."
