Italian Grand Prix organizers have made alterations to the speed bumps at Monza's second chicane, following complaints from drivers about their design.
The FIA has long struggled to find a satisfactory deterrent for drivers cutting the chicanes that does not risk safety. For this year, much longer strips of speed bumps have been used – but there were problems for some drivers in practice after they bounced over them following off-track excursions.
To try and improve matters, the speed bumps at the Roggia chicane were altered ahead of final practice, with the first curb moved back from the apex of Turn 5 (the right-hand part of the chicane) by five meters, while also being extended by a further five meters.
This change should allow drivers to safely go around the speed bumps without being forced to bounce over them. Drivers have been advised that if they run off the track then they should go right around the speed bumps and rejoin at the far corner of the run-off area.
