Singapore changes track for overtaking chances


A tweak to the layout of Singapore’s F1 street circuit could boost overtaking. That is the view of track engineer Jonathan Giesecke, who has overseen the tweak that was made due to city enhancements in the area around turns 11 to 13 of the highly-popular F1 night race layout.

The local Channel Newsasia said the amended turn 11 will now be slightly slower, cars will now use the left lane of Anderson Bridge, and the hairpin at turn 13 is now wider.

The changes have been approved by the governing FIA.

“It’s a fantastic challenge to translate changes to Singapore’s Civic District into improvements to the Marina Bay street circuit,” said Giesecke.

“I expect the modifications from Turns 11 to 13 will enable closer racing and the potential for additional passing opportunities,” he added.
