Silverstone will have a single DRS zone for this weekend's British Grand Prix

The FIA has decided to revert to a single DRS zone for this weekend’s British Grand Prix, temporarily doing away to the dual-zone concept is tried – with mixed success – at the previous rounds in Canada and Valencia.

There had been reports that the sport’s governing body was looking to run a second zone along the old start/finish straight, but it has decided to stick with its original plan of a single zone along the Wellington Straight.

The detection zone will be placed 25 metres before Turn 3 (indicated in green), while the DRS activation point is 45 metres after Turn 4 (indicated by the first red line), before the Turn 5 left-hander leading onto the track’s second-longest straight.
