“The first thing I thought about when I heard that Formula 1 was going to race in Qatar was that there would be more holes.”Franco Morbidelli joked in Austin about the news of Formula 1 arriving at Losail. Drivers are rightly jealous of their tracks, and F1 cars are notorious for making holes under braking and acceleration that really annoy their two-wheeled colleagues.
The Losail circuit is historically the kingdom of drivers, but it is doomed to evolve to accommodate the best series of motor races. To reveal it, as was reported in la-course.com, was FIA Race Director Michael Masi: “The entrance to the pit lane will change drastically for motorcycles. “
They have already started to adapt the track to the needs of the cars and are almost finished.
“A number of double edging has been installed, both on the inside of the corners, to prevent drivers from cutting them, and on the outside.,“, explained Masi.”There has also been a major upgrade for many barriers, but the pit lane entry is the biggest change.“
As for the stands, there was no need to intervene.
We still do not know what the new design of the pit entrance will be. We will have to wait and hope that this does not also create problems for the riders and cross our fingers that the curbs return to ‘normal’ when MotoGP returns to Qatar.
