Given where we are with protective barriers (such as TecPro), I never understood why Imola was never remodelled to approach the feel of the old Imola.Imola thinking about it the old circuit the cars took a serious pounding but they were taking liberties from Tamburello to Villeneuve with big crashes until 1994. The revised version lacks something now
- You could tighten the old Tamburello a bit (or put a chicane in front of it, to turn the corner into an acceleration zone), with improved barriers on the outside.
- Villeneuve, I think was just too fast, but you could do something innovative, such as a braking zone into a hairpin corner, leading into Tosa (rather than a chicane).
- I like the new Acque Minerale (the old version was really fiddly)
- In principle, the Rivazzas should allow overtaking - but in reality, you can't, because of braking downhill. I'd smoothen these up, possibly even add banking, to allow cars to follow onto the start/finish straight.
