Like Andretti said, it is a challenging turn and it would be a pity if they changed it in the coming years. Apparently, the stewards have said that they will be 'lenient' towards anyone going off the race line there but what this really means is open to question. For instance, if a driver overtook another by using the scenic route deliberately, I don't think they can wave him past without a penalty.

This.
This is what I absolutely cannot stand, and I've touched on it before. Because drivers are having trouble navigating through a turn without error, they feel the need to widen the window in terms of how much excess tarmac you can use. It's a all hail the mods joke. It's constantly drilled into our heads that these are the best racing car drivers in the world, and yet they get special treatment because there's a turn on a track that they can't perfect on a lap-by-lap basis.

Turn 19 really needs a gravel trap.

This ^^

They might go a smidge slower and actually make the turn instead of keeping the boot in.
