    Hi @denboy. The one second gap for DRS activation is measured at two different points on the track at Sochi: one approaching turn one and another approaching turn ten. The gap between Vettel and Bottas you saw could have been mentioned at some other point on the track at a time when it happened to be larger.

    Also, drivers can use DRS when they are within one second of any car, even one which is a lap behind. Bottas and Vettel were lapping a lot of cars towards the end of the race. It’s possible Vettel was within a second of one of those at a DRS detection point, and was therefore able to use DRS.

    Hope that clears it up!

    Interesting to note other F1 observers referring to commentators hyping up the action:

    Here’s which races are already confirmed on the 2018 F1 calendar.

    Note Singapore haven’t announced a race deal beyond 2017 yet. As I recall the last time they announced a new contract it was on the day before the final race of the existing contract.

    @eurobrun They are indeed all F1 drivers who’ve started the Indy 500 from pole position!

    @fintard96 They may be but there must be hundreds of drivers for whom that’s the case – this is a bit more specific.

    @nicknuck Oh sorry, I forgot those are left out because they screw the graph up. The missing times are from laps 14-16 as follows:

    2:46.092
    2:24.551
    2:23.480

    @nicknuck All the lap times for all the drivers are published in the ‘fastest laps and lap times’ articles which typically go up within a few hours of each race:
