Spa-Francorchamps pitlane complaintFormula One’s Grand Prix Drivers’ Association has written to the sport’s governing body in regards to the new pitlane entry at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. The Belgian track has undergone several changes ahead of this year’s Grand Prix, and while drivers were mostly happy with the layout revisions, they complained that the pitlane entry was too narrow.

“It is completely blind,” Williams driver Nico Rosberg told autosport during the first day of testing. “So as you rush to come in, if there is someone there it will be a big pile-up.” BMW Sauber’s Robert Kubica added: “It’s very difficult to see the pitlane entry, the entry is very narrow and the wall comes very close.”

GPDA director David Coulthard confirmed this morning that the drivers’ body had written to the FIA to ask for alterations to the pitlane entry in time for this year’s race, scheduled for September 16.
