blzbub - I thought the same but it is a double DRS zone not two DRS zones.
There will be only one area where the 2 cars are timed, followed by two areas where they can open the wing. If there is an overtake for the lead on the first straight, the car that overtook will still have the advantage on the second straight and can open up the gap.
Sounds nuts to me, but that's how it is.

Imagine final lap, where p2 is trying to overtake p1, and the 2nd DRS( stretch before start-finish DRS ) becomes critical.
Had there been only the start-finish stretch DRS, p2 simply wont have any 'artifical aid' in overtaking p2, bcoz by the time his DRS kicks in and starts becoming effective, p1 wud have crossed finish line.
However, with one more DRS stretch BEFORE the original DRS,p2 cud yet overtake p1. And i imagine Lewis making such a move on vettel come sunday.
