FIA defends Parabolica change

The FIA has defended its decision to replace part of the gravel trap at Monza's Parabolica corner ahead of this weekend's Italian GP on safety grounds, saying that drivers supported the move.The addition of a strip of tarmac run-off to the outside of Parabolica was first revealed last month, prompting an outcry that both the appeal and challenge of one of F1's most famous corners has been neutered.A significant chunk of the gravel remains, but while the governing body acknowledges that Parabolica might not be the test it was, it insists the change is necessary.
