FIA outlines strict track limits at Turns 2/3
14 September 2017 – F1's governing body, the FIA, has outlined a strict track limits policy ahead of this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.
In a move to stop drivers running wide and gaining an advantage at the start of the lap, a new system has been put in place through Turns 2 and 3.
If a driver takes to the run-off at Turn 2, they will now be required to rejoin the track to the right of a newly-installed bollard, situated at Turn 3.
FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting communicated the procedure in his pre-event notes.
"Any driver who fails to negotiate Turn 2 by using the track, and who passes completely to the right of the orange kerb element, must keep to the right of the red and white polystyrene block and re-join the track on the outside of Turn 3," he explained.
Several sections of the circuit have also been resurfaced for this year's event.
