It is an official name:
http://www.corvetteracing.com/news/l...rvette-curves/

Whether it will be kept or changed like the Mulsanne chicanes, is unknown.

Giba should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Seem to remember reading somewhere that the Ford chicane was paid for by Ford as it increased the lap time and made it less likely for anyone to break their then current distance record. Likewise I think Porsche paid for the Porsche curves and so they got named after them.

So for Audi to have a corner named after them, they probably will need to pay for some work done on it or if the track changes layout, a new corner

And what about Ferrari?

No offense whatsoever to Chevrolet, but Ferrari has won outright and without checking, I presume has had far more entries overall than Corvettes entered.
