While we would happily advocate nuking the site from orbit
with Hermann Tilke strapped to the bomb and starting from a clean sheet of paper, the European Grand Prix’s promoter, Valmor Sport, has announced it will consider a number of changes to the circuit to improve overtaking and driver safety.
The third running of the event – despite being a much more interesting race than previous years – again attracted a wave of criticism for not providing enough overtaking opportunities.
“We want to apply changes and will listen to the drivers,” Valmor’s president, Jorge Martinez Aspar said.
Adding that the sport’s governing body, the FIA, will also be consulted in the process, he added: “We are looking at a series of small changes in some parts of the track, three in particular, to see if it will give more overtaking.”
