After the race in Mugello, a discussion on the old topic flared up with renewed vigor: maybe there should be more classic gravel traps on the Formula 1 tracks instead of wide asphalted departure zones?

Here is the opinion of Jacques Villeneuve, world champion in 1997: “There are problems with these huge relegation zones on modern tracks. The driver says to himself: “I can take more risks, because nothing can happen to me – the relegation zones are covered with asphalt.”

We are used to gravel traps, which stopped the car much faster, but at the same time there was a risk that it could roll over. However, in modern Formula 1, these zones are organized in such a way that the drivers have a deceptive sense of safety. “

But FIA Racing Director Michael Masi looks at this problem differently, and we have already quoted his opinion: “It is impossible to arrange gravel traps everywhere. I have said more than once that on each track we must look for the most suitable solution and negotiate it with the owners of the circuit. This work continues, we are discussing this issue with the riders. But it will not be possible to apply such a solution everywhere. “
