With overtaking generally a straightforward prospect at the Interlagos circuit, the FIA has announced that it will have a single DRS zone for the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.
The detection point will be located in the second corner of the ‘Senna S’ complex that starts the lap, with the activation point located 70 metres after the exit of Turn 3, the Curva do Sol.
This makes the DRS zone along the circuit’s back straight some 600 metres long before the drivers brake for Turn 4, the Descida do Lago.
“There will be one DRS zone on the back straight,” the FIA’s Charlie Whiting has said.
“We think this will be enough, as the main straight usually gives a good enough opportunity to overtake anyway, so we don’t want to make it too easy.”
