The FIA have confirmed several minor changes to the Silverstone circuit, aimed at making the track safer for the drivers.

This year, due to the new wider faster cars, motorsport’s governing body has inspected all the tracks on the calendar and implemented changes were necessary.

For Silverstone this has seen new double kerbs installed on the exit of Turns 9 (Copse) and 18 (Club) while a new debris fence has been erected on the left between Turns 14 and 15.

Added to that the depth of tyre and TecPro barriers has been increased in places around the outside of Turns 1, 2, 6, 9, 15 and 16.
