The FIA has confirmed that this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix will have two separate DRS zones, marking the first time this feature has been used since September’s Italian Grand Prix.

Buddh Circuit DRS Zones The first detection zone is placed 10 metres after Turn 15 of the new Buddh International Circuit, with its activation point placed 36 metres after the final corner to allow drivers a better chance to overtaking on the circuit’s short start/finish straight.

The second DRS zone is placed 16 metres before Turn 3, with the activation point (mirroring the placement of the Korean Grand Prix’s DRS zone) being position roughly halfway down the circuit’s long back straight.
