Overnight changes to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has seen the Turn 1 run-off area modified ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.
During the weekend, drivers were rejoining near the apex of Turn 2 as a barrier had been installed on the exit of the inside of the corner.
Drivers had to clumsily make their way back onto the circuit, which raised questions over its efficiency during the race.
However, drivers should now be able to navigate their way through the runoff and rejoin off the racing line on the exit of Turn 2.
Updated Race Director notes affirm: “Any driver who fails to negotiate with Turn 1 should re-join the track at the far end of the asphalt run-off at the entry of Turn 2
It will allow for a safer rejoin, especially on the opening lap if drivers opt to take to the escape road.
A number of drivers questioned the barrier placement during the weekend, with George Russell stating that drivers “should have been consulted about the views” before the decision was made.
Max Verstappen will start the race from pole position, with Fernando Alonso lining up alongside him after Nico Hulkenberg was penalised.
