On the contrary, for the most part the singular reason a chicane exists is for safety--to reduce speed on subsequent turns, especially when there isn't much runoff. That one just happens to be hard to profile, because you're going so fast on the front straight, and you can get going so fast again through Curva Grande...so they need to make it super tight.
