Michael Masi has confirmed that the grip level at the Istanbul Park circuit has been improved ahead of the Turkish GP.
Why it matters: Istanbul Park was resurfaced several weeks before the 2020 Turkish GP, so it as well as rainy weather caused a lot of problems with grip.
- The teams have been informed about the changes at the track.
- Masi confirms that the Istanbul track has been water-blasted.
What he had to say:
- “We do regularly each season send updates to the teams about any circuit changes for upcoming events. Be they be barriers, fences, gates, whatever. It may be areas of resurfacing.”
- “So yes, the surface in Turkey has been effectively water-blasted, would probably be the best way to put it, which is a regular treatment that happens.”
