All change at The Bus Stop
THE famed Bus Stop Chicane at Spa-Francorchamps will be markedly different this year with the entry of the chicane having been made less acute to avoid the kind of incidents that have often been seen there in the past. To avoid confusion over the entrance to the pitlane, this too has been changed with a new pit exit lane having been built halfway through the chicane, off the racing line, this means that those wishing to pit will move to the right after the first part of the chicane, allowing those who stay out to pass them on the racing line.
This is good news in terms of safety but there are still serious doubts about the Belgian GP as the Belgian government continues to be unwilling to compromise on the issue of tobacco advertising.
