French GP gets two DRS zones for return race

The returning French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard will feature two drag-reduction zones despite the FIA's push to use three at most races in an attempt to encourage overtaking.

The first zone has a detection point 75 metres before Turn 7 and an activation point 170m after Turn 7, running down to the Mistral Chicane.

The second zone will run down the main start/finish straight, with a detection point on the Turn 14 apex and an activation point 115m after Turn 15 – the final turn on the 5.8km circuit.

The FIA has also confirmed that the driver steward this weekend will be Yannick Dalmas, 1992 world sportscar champion, four times Le Mans winner and former Larrousse F1 driver. He will be joined by Enzo Spano, president of the sporting commission of the automobile and touring club Venezuela and regular steward Garry Connelly.
