The DRS zone on the longest straight at the Baku City Circuit has been shortened for this weekend’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
The track’s other DRS zone, which begins at the exit of turn two, is unchanged, as are the detection points for the zones
Before the season began, the FIA announced it would adjust the DRS zones used at the first five venues on the calendar. Not all these changes have been done to reduce the availability of DRS, which some expected might take place in the second year after F1 revised its technical regulations to aid overtaking.
A further change to the DRS rules will be tested for the first time this weekend. While drivers may only use DRS two laps after the start or a Safety Car period in the grand prix, activation will be permitted one lap earlier in Saturday’s sprint race.
