Vettel has no concerns over switch to high-speed Outer track after Grosjean crash

by Dec 4, 20200 comments


In the round-up: Sebastian Vettel says he has no concerns about Formula 1 using a faster track layout for its second race in Bahrain following Romain Grosjean’s crash last weekend.

What they say

Vettel was asked whether he would have preferred to race on the grand prix track again instead of the Outer circuit this weekend:

I don’t think it changes anything in this regard. I don’t think there’s any connection to be made with Romain’s accident last weekend.

It’s good to see, obviously, that we have the red flag and then immediately precautions were taken on that spot. And I think for this week as well around the track there were some more precautions taken. So that’s the least you can do in that short amount of time.

But racing here, I think, doesn’t expose us to anything extra just because the track layout is different.
