Greater Noida: Fans attending the Oct 26-28 Indian Grand Prix will see a handful of track changes at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) including at the 'famous' turn 8 which caused Felipe Massa's accident during the inaugural edition.
The length of the kerbs at turn 6, 7, 8 and 9 have been increased from 5 to 15 metres, leaving little room for the drivers to take short cuts to get back on the racing line. The tweaking has given a "sausage" look to the kerbs, all of which stand at 25mm.
"We made changes to the kerbs after the recommendations of the FIA. The track is completely ready for the racing weekend. It should be a more exciting race than last year with the championship wide open," said Farhan Vora, in charge of the race operations.
