The Singapore Grand Prix organisers have taken steps to reduce the bumpiness of the circuit.
The track has been re-surfaced to ease the bumps between turns three and seven and at turns 14 and 19.
Drivers had complained about the bumps at the first two races. Ahead of this weekend’s race Nick Heidfeld said:
It will be interesting to see how the situation with the bumps has developed. In this regard, the track got worse from 2008 to 2009 and it was said this would be sorted out.
The pit lane has been lowered by 1cm and resurfaced to make it easier for cars re-joining the track.
Turn 10 now has revised kerbs. The organisers say this is to create “a more gradual curve in order for the drivers to make safer exits from the chicane.”
In addition to the track changes the walls around the circuit have been painted blue, green and yellow. The run-off areas will be painted red, white and yellow.
