F1 will revert to using a single DRS zone at this weekend’s British Grand Prix, having used two in the last two races.

The zone will cover the whole of the Wellington Straight, the new stretch used for the first time last year which leads into Brooklands (turn six).

The activation point will give drivers the option of using DRS through the flat-out kink leading onto the straight.

The detection point will be shortly before the zone begins, on the entry to Village (turn three).

    Certainly a more conservative approach than we had in Valencia, more typical of the first opening races.
