Drivers will only be able to use DRS once per lap during the German Grand Prix.

But they will be able to deploy it heading towards one of the prime overtaking spots on the track – the Veedol chicane.

The FIA has confirmed the DRS detection zone will be on the approach to the Kumho-Kurve (turn ten). Drivers will then be able to activate their rear wings shortly after the exit of the Bit-Kurve (turn 11).

They will then be able to keep them open all the way up to the braking zone for the chicane. Here’s a diagram showing the positioning of the zone:

As usual, drivers will have free use of the wing in practice and qualifying.
