Formula 1 governing body also confirmed that unlike the European and Canadian Grand Prix, the German circuit will have just a single DRS zone. The detection point will start at the entrance to Turn 10 and drivers will be able to active the rear wing from the exit of Turn 11.
“The Nürburgring is always a challenge, usually because of the weather, which is often threatening, whatever time year a grand prix is held here,” FIA race director Charlie Whiting said. The DRS zone has been set for the straight before the tight chicane, so we should see some good overtaking. There’s always good action at the first corner: it’s nice and wide, with a variety of lines, which gives drivers an opportunity to pass.”
