Modifications have been made to Les Combes chicane at Spa-Francorchamps in a bid to deter drivers from cutting the corner.
As part of a number of revisions made to the Belgian Grand Prix venue, the large section of grass behind the corner sequence has been relaid with asphalt. Additionally, bumps similar to those used at the Monza chicanes have been put down – which will act as a deterrent to slow drivers down if they run off the track.
Behind the Turn 6 curb itself, a section of artificial grass has been laid down, while on the exit of the left-hander the section has been turned into a 50mm negative curb with more artificial grass.
The other change to the Spa circuit is that the artificial grass at the exit of La Source hairpin has been widened and extended to the end of the run-off area.
