F1 won't use temporary Interlagos chicane

By on Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Jul.13 (GMM) A temporary chicane will not be added to the layout of the Brazilian grand prix circuit in November.

Following recent fatalities at Interlagos' Cafe corner, circuit improvements - requiring the removal of a grandstand - will not be done until after F1's 2011 finale.

In the next few weeks, stock car and other formative series will use a temporary chicane to ensure the safety of competitors at the Sao Paulo venue.

"F1 ... will not use the chicane," clarified a report in the local O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.
