FIA confirms higher curbs for Monza race

(GMM) Measures have been taken to dissuade drivers from cutting the chicanes during the Italian grand prix weekend at Monza this weekend.

The FIA announced on Tuesday that 'combination curbs' have been installed at the apexes of turns 1, 2, 4 and 5 – the first two chicanes, known as Rettifilo and Roggia respectively – at the famous venue located north of Milan.

It was explained that the same sort of curbs are also featured at the chicane towards the end of the Nurburgring layout, and also at the new chicane in Barcelona.

F1's official website said the Monza curbs are higher than before "in a bid to stop drivers cutting the track's famous high-speed chicanes".
