This sounds interesting, if it goes ahead, I also hope they reinstate the gravel on the outside of Parabolica.

We see quite a lot of overtaking moves into the second chicane so I would personally be quite disappointed to see it removed, particularly if the reasoning is just to make the track quicker. From the perspective of a TV viewer, you're not really going to notice if they manage to add a few extra km/h to the average speed of the lap by removing a chicane, but you are going to notice if there is a drop in overtaking...

Chicane number one is the worst glitch on the current layout.

I agree the first chicane is the only eyesore on the circuit. There appears to be plenty of space to turn it into some "esses" instead.

Whatever is done, leave the Lesmos alone.

It would help if they had a sketch of the new layout
