SAO PAULO, Brazil - Organisers of the 2014 Brazilian GP have tweaked safety measures in the light of Jules Bianchi's Suzuka crash in October.

Globo reports that the tractor destined to be on duty in the famous 'Senna-S' has been relocated.

IMPROVED SAFETY

Ernesto Morales, the chief engineer at Interlagos, said: "The Bianchi accident certainly made us think.

"One of the changes we have made is the adoption of a new post at the new run-off area at the Senna-S so no tractor will enter there. Undoubtedly, the changes have improved safety procedures."

During the wet Brazilian GP in 2003 Michael Schumacher spun off and narrowly missed a tractor that was removing Juan Pablo Montoya's stricken Williams.
