Felipe Massa had a torrid time at the inaugural Indian GP, twice hitting the “sausage kerbs” guarding the boundaries of the extremely fast turns in the middle sector. Much like the formidable Esses at Suzuka’s first sector, a driver’s rhythm is everything.
Massa complained last year asking for the removal of such kerbs. What did the Indian authorities do?
“We have added additional sausage kerbs to deter the drivers even more,” a BIC official told the Times Of India.
And they named them ‘Massa kerb’s! Hands down the best response to a driver complaint ever.
Good on them for doing so! It’s not unsafe & righty protects track limits which we see drivers regularly exceed.
