The Italian Grand Prix will be the first race with two DRS detection and activation zones per lap.

The drivers will reach a detection point between the two Lesmo bends which will then allow them to activate DRS on the straight leading to Ascari.

Further around the lap another detection point at the exit of Parabolica will allow drivers to use DRS on the start/finish straight.

Two DRS activation zones were used in Montreal and Valencia, but they were activated based on the a single detection point.

Here is the arrangement of the DRS detection and activation areas which will be used in the race this weekend:
