As reported on

The Variante Alta, which used to see cars fly across the high kerbs as drivers straight-lined the right-left ‘ess’, has been reprofiled, with the kerbs flattened but the corner radius tightened.

The tweaks are expected to reduce speeds at what was quite a fast, third-gear chicane, making it similar to the left-right Variante Bassa at the bottom of the hill.

After inspecting the circuit by foot on Thursday, most drivers gave the changes a provisional thumbs-up, reckoning the new layout safer than the old one.
