FIA set DRS zone on pit straight at Sepang

2011 Malaysian Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

The FIA have confirmed details of where drivers can use their Drag Reduction Systems during the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Drivers will be able to activate their rear wings coming out of the final corner onto the longest straight on the track, which is over one kilometre long.

They will only be allowed to use it if they are within one second of another car at a line just over 200m before the final turn.

This diagram published by the FIA shows the location of the zones on the track (click to enlarge):
