Paul Ricard abrasive stripes
As everybody, including young Adam, knows, the blue abrasive stripes damage your tyres forcing you to pit, the red ones disable the tyres and put you out of the race. Both types allow you to brake and recover if heading for the barriers. I have no idea what the white ones are for.
I wouldn't call FIA accomplices, I would call them cheap. Besides, if you ask me, the track looks cool.

Small kerbs to create a chicane effect in run off areas also impede run off, but tend to make cars airborne.
The clearest example was Kimi at Spa (08?) when he "ran wide" on the first corner at the start and gained 2 or 3 places. Of course he said he was avoiding an accident, but it looked awfully premeditated.
