The FIA has ruled that the Formula 1 drivers will again be banned from using the Drag Reduction System in Monaco’s famous Tunnel at any point during next weekend’s Grand Prix activities.
The build-up to last year’s race in the Principality saw most of the grid’s drivers campaign for the use of the adjustable rear wing to be outlawed on safety grounds.
The sport’s governing body agreed with their concerns and banned its use, and their decision was further vindicated in the wake of Sergio Perez’s heavy accident at the Harbourfront Chicane during qualifying.
With the Mexican’s accident highlighting the dangers of the circuit’s layout, the FIA has again agreed to ban the use of DRS in the tunnel this year, while also confirming that the race’s activation zone will again be on the circuit’s start/finish straight.
