Two DRS zones for the first time at Interlagos

2013 Brazilian Grand Prix

Kimi Raikkonen, Michael Schumacher, Interlagos, 2012Two DRS zones will be set up on the Interlagos circuit for this weekend’s race, the first time multiple zones have been used at the track.

To the existing zone on the Reta Oposta straight an additional DRS activation point on the pit straight will be added. Drivers will be able to activate DRS 60 metres before the turn 15 kink which marks the end of the lap.

The previous DRS zone on the straight leading to Descida do Lago will be shortened by 153 metres. Drivers will not only be able to use DRS after they have exited turn three.

    I think we’ve about approached the point where the FIA’s rule on DRS is “ZOMG DRS EVERYWHERE!!!!”

    How about doing us all a solid and bring back the 2007 spec car with a better, higher revving turbo V6. This is what the people want.

  2. I have a question about this DRS thing. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the whole reason we have 2 DRS zones this year, to encourage the teams to use different gearing ratios etc.? Well, seeing as gear ratios are going to be fixed next year for the whole season, doesn’t it mean that incentive for the teams is gone, so we could possibly go back to one (or none at all) DRS zones?
