Monza eyes chicane in middle of Curva Grande?

Monza is eyeing a tweak to its fabled circuit layout.

Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that, as the Autodromo Nazionale looks ahead to a future on motorcycle racing calendars, a chicane to break up the famous and sweeping Curva Grande may be necessary.

In fact, the report said the change has already been agreed - also with F1 race director Charlie Whiting - and will be implemented by the summer of 2017.

Gazzetta said the cost of the changes will be EUR 4 million, while an illustrative photo depicted the new left-right as having a 2.5 metre elevation change.

Reportedly, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel has already tested the amended configuration in the simulator and found it to be interesting.
