A boring race with hardly any (if any) overtaking I think. Most of the paddock saying the same. The drivers have requested the chicane be removed.


Another Monaco?

In what format/context have the drivers requested the chicane be removed?

Is it from drivers' columns in the press, in interview(s), at a drivers' briefing?....

Raised at the drivers briefing..... no changes can be made to the track as homologated for this years race was the response.

Quote:
Drivers have voiced their desire to change the layout of the Paul Ricard circuit following the opening day’s running at the venue.

Making its return to the Formula 1 calendar for the first time in 28 years, the circuit now features a chicane midway down the Mistral Straight.

During the 1970s and the first half of the 1980s the circuit ran uninterrupted down the long back straight, before F1 used a shortened circuit following the testing accident which killed Elio de Angelis in 1986.

However drivers feel the chicane will detract from their ability to race, and have raised their concerns with the FIA during Friday night’s driver’s briefing.

“I think a long straight line will potentially create more overtakes,” said Brendon Hartley.

“I don’t think it will happen for tomorrow, but I’ve tested and raced without the chicane.

“It makes things interesting because it’s less downforce with the long straight line, Turn 10 becomes more of a corner, and so does the last sector with less downforce.

“Maybe it’s a discussion point for next year. The good news is here there are plenty of options....”

....No changes can be made to the venue for this weekend’s race, as the existing layout has been homologated.

Future changes, such as the removal of the chicane in the middle of the Mistral Straight, would require the FIA to analyse the impact that has to the run off area at Turn 6.

E.B Thanks. I'm sure the drivers know it can't be changed for this year, but perhaps they are pushing for it to be assessed over the course of the weekend, in the hope of a change for 2019?

Unfortunately I have to wait till gone 10 to see highlights on C4. Dunno why though

I agree with the drivers, use the full straight, there'd be no need to use DRS if that was the case.

At the top of a mountain. Only 2 real roads in, both minor roads. Was always going to be a nightmare.

Not alone. There are many fans turning around and driving back home. Some with top tier tickets are going to watch the race from home or their hotels. Even fans who flew over from outside Europe!! Utter shambles.

It was bad enough years ago so it would always get worse with more (and bigger) cars, I might watch it on the box with a cool beer, but will probably just watch the highlights later

Vettee overcooked his flying lap and will start 3rd. Lulu gets his 75th pole and Bottas completes the Mercedes front row shut out. Verstappen and Ricciardo are 4th and 5th.

My son, an Ocon fan, is not impressed as Leclerc knocked Ocon out in Q2. I said I’m beginning to like itiseye because he’s driving really well. He said he was beginning to hate him. Knowing that I was disappointed that the LE MANS WINNER Alonso went out in Q1 he asked why I didn’t hate the drivers that knocked him out. He’s six.
