FIA to look into Fuji pit-lane modifications

Following driver concerns over how safe the entry of the pit-lane is at the Fuji circuit, the FIA have said they will look into whether modifications should be made.

On Friday evening, the drivers met for a drivers briefing and expressed their concerns over the entry to the pit-lane. The FIA have now confirmed that they will look into the pit-lane issue overnight and decide whether anything can be done before practice on Saturday morning.

After the meeting Rubens Barrichello explained, “We spoke about it and they are going to have a look at what they can do tonight.”

David Coulthard commented,” They will look at ti before morning. We are all in unanimous agreement that it is the most difficult corner of the track.”

Mark Webber is doubtful that any changes can be made this weekend however he is hopeful that changes will be made before Formula 1 returns next season. “I don t know if they will be able to make the changes,” he explained. “It is definitely something that needs to be addressed next year, but I m not too worried about it really.”
