Don’t meddle with “drivers’ circuits” like Spa – Wolff | RaceFans Round-up

In the round-up: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff doesn’t want to see major changes at Spa in the wake of Antonio Giovinazzi’s crash last weekend.

What they say

Giovinazzi hit a barrier at Fagnes and debris from his car was struck by George Russell, who also retired.

I think Spa is one of the most iconic circuits and I don’t think we should be meddling with these kind of drivers circuits.

The corner Giovinazzi went off is a real driver’s corner. It’s really fast and you can easily lose the rear there and this is what happened. I think I’m happy that both drivers escaped unhurt.

Obviously, George had to avoid the tyre, which looked scary. I think the tyre shouldn’t come off the car and we need to examine that.

But on the other side, we are really missing those drivers’ circuits. We should have more of these rather than less.
