Kerbs at Hungary
While walking the track on the Thursday before the Hungarian Grand Prix, a few things struck, and the design of the kerbs at turn 6/7 was one of them. It's a two-stage affair, with a standard stepped kerb, with a semi-circular sectioned inside piece, clearly designed to reduced tyre contact area and thus grip, as well as raising the ride height of the RHS of the car - presumably with the idea of deterring drivers from climbing up it.
