Sainz continues calls for more challenging circuit layouts

Sainz continues calls for more challenging circuit layouts

McLaren driver Carlos Sainz believes the FIA are "listening very well" after the drivers backed the return of gravel traps to circuits.

Multiple drivers became undone at Mugello, which was completely lined with gravel and grass for Formula 1's first visit to the circuit.

Team-mate Lando Norris spoke of his hate of the gravel run-offs after his practice accident ahead of the Tuscan Grand Prix but threw his backing behind more challenging track layouts in the future.

Sainz revealed the FIA is proactive in communicating with the drivers to find a solution.

"I think Parabolica [at Monza] is a very good example of what drivers want," he explained.

"What we don't want is these kerbs and sensors. The FIA actually is very productive and they want to help make tracks a bit more risk and reward like we were talking about.

"You can ask the FIA for the final answer but I can say they are being very productive and they are listening very well."

The Spaniard highlighted the issue of circuits not being challenging enough at the Belgian Grand Prix at the start of the previous triple-header.

“The feeling of risk and risk-reward is not good enough in these modern circuits," he said.

"Even though safety is primary, I still think there is a compromise to be found with tarmac run-off areas."
