The structure of the Melbourne’s Albert Park circuit will change forward of the Australian Grand Prix on November 21.
The normal F1 season opener has been delayed till the latter a part of the season as a result of coronavirus pandemic. That change of date has allowed circuit work to be introduced ahead.
The revamp of the circuit will probably be geared toward addressing current criticisms of the circuit. Whereas the venue stays fashionable, drivers have voiced frustrations on the restricted overtaking alternatives supplied.
Work will start on Monday and is anticipated to be accomplished in July.
The primary section has already been accomplished, with the pitlane widened two metres and the pit wall moved to the sting of the highway instead of a grass verge. The second section, an alteration to a number of elements of the circuit, is but to be accomplished.
The most important change will come on the Flip 9/10 chicane, which is about to be turned from a heavy-braking right-hander right into a high-speed a part of the circuit.
