Single DRS zone for European Grand Prix

European Grand Prix decides eliminate the second DRS zone at Turn 17 hairpin, in an effort to interesting the typically boring grand prix around the streets of Valencia.

Formula 1 governing body FIA set up two zones – one from just before Turn 11 and the second just following the exit of Turn 14 down to Turn 17 – in 2011.

The solo DRS zone will once more be located on the back make bigger with the DRS opening region expected to start after Turn 10.

F1 official tyre provider Pirelli’s motorsport director Paul Hembery has already declared that European GP is unlikely to provide copiousness of overtaking action.

“Valencia could not present a bigger contrast to the street circuits that have come before it: the track is faster and the temperatures higher, with plenty of energy going through the tyres,” he said.

“What it has in common with the others is the difficulty of overtaking, which will put the emphasis on qualifying.

“So we are expecting a fairly straightforward race, with either two or three stops depending on which tactics the teams use – although one team tried a one-stopper last year as well.”
