DRS zone leads to hairpin at Hockenheim

2012 German Grand PrixPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

The DRS zone for Sunday’s race at the Hockenheimring will be on the straight leading to the Spitzkehre hairpin, turn six on the circuit.

As Hockenheim was not on the calendar last year this will be the first time DRS is used at the circuit.

The detection point for the zone is at the exit of the preceding turn four. Drivers can activate DRS 260m after exiting that corner.
