Track changes

Valencia track officials have revealed details of the safety changes they have made to the street circuit, following consultations with the FIA and drivers:
Most obvious alterations has been to the pit exit, which has been reworked to bring it to the same level as the track. As a result of this change the wall separating the two has been removed.
Curbs on the apex of turns 4 and 5 have been extended, while the trackside walls at turns 3, 5, 9, 10 and 14 have been moved further from the circuit.
Other minor modifications include the use of high-grip resin to seal the inner pit lane and the addition of artificial grass behind the curbs on the exits of turns 10 and 14.
