DRS activation zone in European Grand Prix



June.20 – The Formula 1 governing body FIA fixes One DRS detection point in upcoming race at Valencia, after an attractive entrance for the concept in Montreal last weekend. And the DRS having been used in two zones in Montreal, F1 governing body has confirmed that it plans to have a similar double concept again in Spain – although it will not be used along the start-finish straight.

The first zone in Valencia will run from 285 meters after Turn 10, with the second zone starting 35 meters after Turn 14. The single detection area will be 130 meters before Turn 8.

The use of a single detection zone means that a driver who is behind a rival in the detection zone can use his DRS both to overtake in the first activation zone and then to pull out a gap at the second. Although that policy caused some controversy in Canada, Renault’s Nick Heidfeld was one of several drivers who backed the experiment by the FIA.
