Brazil moves tractor after Bianchi crash

Organisers of the Brazilian grand prix have tweaked safety measures in light of Jules Bianchi’s life-threatening Suzuka crash a month ago.

Globo reports that the tractor destined to be on duty in the famous ‘Senna-S’ has been relocated.

“The Bianchi accident certainly made us think,” said Luis Ernesto Morales, the chief engineer at Interlagos.

“One of the changes we have made was the adoption of a new post at the new run-off area at the Senna-S, so that there will not be a tractor entering there.

“Undoubtedly, the changes have improved the safety procedures,” he added.

During the wet Brazilian grand prix in 2003, Michael Schumacher spun off and narrowly missed a tractor that was removing Juan Pablo Montoya’s stricken Williams. (GMM)
