The FIA have confirmed details of the DRS zone for the Canadian Grand Prix. As well as reducing the number of DRS zones at Montreal from two to one, the single zone used will be shorter than last year.
During the race drivers will only be able to use DRS on the final straight but not on the pit straight, as they could last year (pictured).
In addition to tis, the DRS zone on the back straight has been shortened by over 100 metres. The activation point has been moved from 168m before the turn 12 (a kink in the straight taken flat-out) to 60m before it.
The detection point remains at the exit of the turn ten hairpin, as was the case last year.
Here’s the position of the DRS zone for this weekend’s race:
