Parabolica, gravel to tarmac

Parabolica, gravel to tarmac

Monza's Parabolica, one of the most iconic corners in Formula 1, has undergone a change with its run-off area tarmacked.

Just weeks before Formula 1 descends on the Monza circuit for the Italian Grand Prix, pictures appeared on Twitter of the Parabolica corner.

In the picture, it is clear to see that the gravel run-off area of yesteryear has been replaced by tarmac.

In previous years Parabolica, the final sweeping corner at the Monza track, features a small section of artifical grass before a gravel trap.

Former F1 driver Karun Chandhok has lamented the loss of yet another great corner.

He tweeted: "So the Monza Parabolica now has Tarmac run off on the outside - another great corner that will lose it's challenge."
