2011 Japanese Grand Prix

DRS may create passing opportunities at turn one

Drivers will get to use their Drag Reduction Systems once per lap during the Japanese Grand Prix.

The FIA has set the DRS zone at the exit of the turn 16/17 chicane leading onto the start/finish straight.

The detection point is at the exit of 130R, meaning drivers will have to exit the high-speed corner within a second of a leading car in order to use DRS.

As usual, drivers will have free use of DRS during practice and qualifying.

    I am having a feeling that the DRS zone is a big long? or is it.
