Masi confirmed to Wheatley the topic would be discussed in the driver's meeting on Friday evening.
The outcome, it is now clear, is that the kerbs will remain in place, this in part down to calls from drivers and teams earlier in the season for harder boundaries that dictate track limits.
Elsewhere, track limits have also been tightened, with turn six, the corner leading onto the Mistral Straight, also now being monitored. Should a driver run wide here in FP3 or during qualifying, their time will be deleted.
In the race, an error at this corner will also count towards a driver's tally which could lead to a penalty if limits are abused frequently.
Other corners being monitored include turns one-five and the turn eight-nine chicane that breaks up the Mistral Straight.
