Two DRS zones for the Indian Grand Prix

2011 Indian Grand Prix

Two DRS zones will be used in the Indian Grand Prix.

Drivers will be able to lower their wings to overtake on the start/finish straight and the long straight heading to turn four.

On the latter, the activation point is halfway along the straight.

The detection points are the exit of turn 15 and the entry to turn three.

    To me DRS seems to make the fastest car on the day come out on top. That’s quite boring, isn’t it?

    The best form of defence is to let your faster rival by on the first drs straight, and then get him on the second drs. If you don’t, your rival will hang back and nail you in the second drs.

    I’m sorry but that isn’t racing, that’s rubbish is what that is.

    Doesn’t make any sense,one point would have been enough.

    A good time to experiment with the system.

    I’m going to be sensible and refrain from slagging off a race that hasn’t happened on a track that is yet to be raced.

      Like other commenters mention though, the best way to experiment is to have no drs at all for some of the remaining races. We then might have some understanding of what, on their own, the tyres and no ddd offer and whether it really is enough for us all.

      At the moment we have no control experiment.

    What a missed opportunity, as there is no real life known overtaking data for this new track, why didn’t they just switch off DRS for this race. To find out if 1. It is needed on this track and where, and 2. To see if the DRS is actually making that much difference compared to the tyre differences.
