Interlagos pit straight DRS zone extended by 100m
The second DRS zone at Interlagos, home to this weekend’s Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix, has been extended by 100 metres.
The FIA has experimented with the number and length of the various zones at Grands Prix this year, in a bid to enhance the quality of the racing.
As per 2017, there will be two DRS zones at Interlagos, with the first located along the Reta Oposta, with the activation point 30 metres after the Curva do Sol, and the detection point at the second apex of the Senna S.
The second detection point remains 30 metres after the Turn 13 kink, but the activation point has been moved from 60 metres before the Turn 15 kink to 160 metres before.
No major changes have been made to the circuit layout since last year’s event.
