Singapore adds third DRS zone

NEWS STORY
18/09/2019

As part of its continuing policy of experimentation with DRS zones, in a bid to improve the quality and quantity of overtakes, the FIA has added a third zone to the Marina Bay Circuit for this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix.

In recent years the Marina Bay track has featured two DRS zones, with the detection point of the first at the exit of Turn 4 and activation 53m after Turn 5, along Raffles Boulevard, and the detection point of the second 180m before the apex of Turn 22 and activation 48m after apex of Turn 23, on the main pit straight.

This year however, a third zone has been added, with its detection point 102m before Turn 13 and activation 78m after Turn 13, covering the short straight that runs along Esplanade Drive.

"I say get rid of the zones completely. Let the drivers open and close the wing at will. It would certainly add an element of difficulty for the drivers trying to figure out just how late they can close it prior to a corner and how soon they can open it coming out of the corner! "

"More false overtaking. Thats all i can say. DRS is so fake. You get overtaken next lap you overtake. F1 is not what it used to be."
