Sky Sports F1 pundit Danica Patrick has suggested that track layouts should be changed so that there is just 'grass and gravel' on the outside of the track, to stop there from being so many issues with track limits.
Now, Patrick has said that changing circuit layouts to make less run-off areas may help with simplifying rules.
She believes this would, not only decrease the amount of infringements we see as there would be no benefit for the drivers going off the track, but may also lead to more exciting races with more safety cars.
“It’s hard to tell at what point in time does a car actually have position on the other car and what point in time are you taking advantage of using the extra road versus not," she told Sky Sports F1.
"I just think they should make it all grass and gravel. We get more safety cars.”
