Second DRS zone added at Nurburgring

Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa, Nurburgring, 2011A second DRS zone has been added at the Nurburgring for this year’s race and the original zone has been shortened slightly.

As in 2011, when F1 last raced at the track, the first detection point on the lap will be before the Kumho-Kurve (turn ten). The activation point at the exit of the Bit-Kurve will be seven metres later than it was last year.

That will allow drivers to use DRS on the approach to the Veedol chicane. The detection point for the new, second DRS zone is after the chicane, 40 metres before the final corner.

Drivers will not be able to activate DRS until 135 metres after the last turn.
