Iconic corner AXED from 2023 Grand Prix as controversial ex-FIA chief Michael Masi get his wish ahead of F1 season

FORMULA ONE have wielded the axe on one of its most iconic corners. Spanish Grand Prix venue Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has seen it’s final sector altered so it no longer includes the chicane at turns 14 and 15. Instead, the circuit will now end with two high-speed corners, reverting back to the layout used before the chicane’s introduction in 2007. Masi pushed for changes to the layout back in 2021, saying at the time: “It’s something that we’ve been looking at for a little while. The new layout will see the circuit length shortened to 4.657km from 4.675km, an 18metre reduction.
