2 DRS zones with 1 detection point for Canada

There will be 2 DRS zones in Canada

There will be 2 DRS zones in Canada

The FIA has confirmed that drivers will be allowed to use Drag Reduction System in two locations for the Canadian Grand Prix.

However, both zones will be served by only one detection point, situated just before L’Epingle hairpin.

The two DRS zones are almost right next to each other. The first activation zone is on the back straight (approx. 800 metres), and the second is the entire length of the pit straight, just one corner later.

As these two zones are close together, the advantage will be hugely in favour of car behind. If it is able to pass before the final hairpin, then the second DRS zone will give the driver a clear lead into the first corner of each lap.
