The FIA has confirmed details of the DRS zone it will use for the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend.

The DRS one-second detection point will be placed just before the final corner, with the activation point occurring right at the start/finish line.

At 830 metres, the DRS zone will be longest on the 2011 calendar so far, and circuit bosses will be hoping that this will boost passing moves on a track that has a notorious reputation for overtaking at the best of times.
