No more surface problems in Turkey says Masi

Formula 1 is confident Turkey’s Istanbul circuit will be in better shape than last year. Amid the new covid era of frequent race cancellations, the sport is heading back to Turkey next weekend amid memories of the treacherous state of the newly resurfaced track. But according to F1 race director Michael Masi, the situation should be resolved in 2021. “We have informed the racing teams that we have treated the surface in a special way so that it builds up more grip,” he told Speed Week. “In Singapore, parts of the circuit were freshly surfaced over and over again and then treated accordingly and there were no problems,” Masi added.
