Fast facts: Driver Rubens Barrichello expects the race to be the last before mirror placement on cars is changed to aid visibility. Drivers have complained that having mirrors on the sidepods of the cars, to aid aerodynamics, makes them vibrate too much and provides poor rear vision. The change would move the mirrors back inward, onto the main body of the chassis, adjacent to the cockpit, where they would be less likely to vibrate.
