We are so used to seeing kerbs (or curbs) on race tracks... but why are they there?

Kerbs should not be wider than the car as it makes track limits confusing for everyone.

flat kerbs fast corners, raised cerbs slow, WHAT KERB/CERB Is IT

I almost think it would be worth having a slight drop of a few inches at most with standing water outside of the flat curve. Nothing that would cause a car to crash or deap enough to drown in in the case of a roll, but enough to eliminate traction and force a tire (tyre :p) change. Great because during practice, said tires are not damaged.

It seems that there needs to be a way to prevent track extension actions by drivers. The obvious solutions is grass and gravel, but we do not want cars to crash because of being crowded by lap 1 chaos. This all goes back to track design. Tracks such as in Singapore have walls. Should all track now have walls? Also, many tracks are used for motorcycle racing as well. The raised curbing is an effective tool to keep this under control.

When I did my first track day, I touched a few Kerbs just like I'd always seen racing drivers do and as I'd normally do in racing games. The difference in grip levels for those split seconds was insane, it was like being on ice. I very quickly decided to stay off them for the rest of the day lol.

They should be the same as the Goodwood track - keep them on the tarmac. No other sport allows you to leave the field of play without a penalty.

Not so much abour kerbs, but track limits. If a track is modified to allow cars to drive beyond the asphalt bits, don't penalise drivers if they do drive there: use the bits for what they are designed. If they want to keep kerbs (for safety), encourage drivers to avoid them, if possible. By making them uncomfortable to rtive on: rumble.

Sausage kerbs started to appear after the standardization of asphalted run-off areas, in order to increase the penalty of making a mistake. Make gravel traps the norm again and see how no special kerbs will be needed.

Coming from Karting, I'm 100% for raised kerbs. For raised kerb you have the risk vs reward. You need to decide if it will save you time, the margin of error before it upsets the car, and how it might affect your tires. Flat kerb needs no decision making. Use it.

Kerb and curb have different meanings but share the same pronunciation. We curb (reduce) our enthusiasm e.g.
MrKelenek Vor 19 Tage
How about a progressive Kerb, that raises more and more the farther you go from tarmac, either linearly or exponentially... that way, a little wheel on it is fine but go too far and it gets way too high to be usefull (within reason ofc)

It’s one thing to drive over the KERBs to avoid a collusion, but drivers who consistently drive over them should get a Pit lane penalty.

100% raised curbs as a track limit indicator. If you don't like it, don't drive on it.

I don't mind small kerbs, when the track can punish track limit issues on their own. For example, if a driver goes beyond the kerb in Monaco, he's probably hitting a wall. But, after watching Bahrain, I feel the Kerbs should be higher as to punish drivers who would want to ignore the intended track limits

Entry kerbs, you know, the kerbs on the entry to a corner that can be used to widen your entry. Not like the apex kerbs that are in the apex of a corner.

Make the curbs slower and you won’t have to police them. It’s as simple as that. There is no excuse for having drama over what IS and what ISN’T the track.

I think there should be an electronic way of measuring track limits ie if center of car is over the white line it triggers, and if u do it 3 times u get a 3 second penalty.

IMO The Sausage should be changed to a Kerb that is shaped in a form/shape/texture/angled that slows the cars down drastically without endangering drivers. Or that they take away alot of tire-life or tire-rubber when u go over them.
