I don't think it is too narrow, not by the rules. Now, with all the corner combinations, Kymi Ring may "feel narrow", but I've no doubt it meets the 12-meter minimum, likely with a 15-meter-wide section around start/finish.

There are, however, a number of circuits in MotoGP that are, or I suspect are, more than 12 meters wide as a minimum. Sepang and Rio Hondo are listed as having a minimum width of 16 meters; compared to that, yeah, 12 meters might well feel narrow, but it meets the regulations.

It does need to meet regulations. It will feel different. As long as it's not too narrow to meet regulations it's fine, there's no problem

Sepang is wide because it's been around long enough and others are wider because they are built up to modern standard. No doubt Finland will feel narrower, but as we said if it meets regulations

So does it have problems that need to be 'ironed up', or is there no problem?

Well the thing is that it will be the same for all the riders and no doubt the racing will go ahead. Whatever it will still be a "safe" track compared with the Isle of Man and the North West races !!!!

Riders cope with whatever they have. As you say it’s got more room than the IoM TT and NW200, otherwise they wouldn’t be going there. It has plenty of run off no doubt

Sepang MotoGP tests
Quartararo, quickest for Petronas Yamaha on day one while still using a 2019 bike, made his debut on the 2020 Factory-Spec M1 on day one.
Pramac Ducati Racing's Jack Miller leads the way at 14:00 local time thanks to a best lap of day two.

Graz should be qualifying in the top 3 on the gridGraz should be qualifying in the top 3 on the gridGraz should be qualifying in the top 3 on the gridGraz should be qualifying in the top 3 on the grid
So Quartararo will win the championship in 2020, move to the works team, find he has no grip or rear tire life and he'll struggle. Meantime, Rossi on the Petronas romps to a 10th title before glorious retirement.




And then I woke up....

Yamaha have done the right thing signing Fabio for 2021. He is already looking a threat

Not denying that, but I prefer "Graz"s answer.
