July.07 – The FIA has decided to just one DRS zone for this weekend’s British GP at Silverstone. Following introducing the overtake-aiding device at the start of 2011, two zones have been used at the most latest pair of races in Montreal and Valencia.
However, the FIA has confirmed that the DRS zone will start 45 metres after Turn 4, with the detection zone being placed 25 metres before Turn 3. With the new Silverstone pits being used this year, Whiting has also said that he will look carefully at the pit lane entry – because its layout means it could be quicker to cross the start/finish line coming into the pits than keeping out on the track.
“The new pits are the biggest difference, and the entry and exit bring new challenges,” explained Whiting. “The entry is shorter than staying on the circuit, so we will have to ensure that drivers don’t use these changes to the pits to their advantage.”
