One DRS zone for Silverstone

The British Grand Prix to feature just one DRS zone
The FIA has confirmed that the British Grand Prix this weekend will feature just one DRS zone, despite suggestions that Silverstone could become the third straight venue to feature two zones.

The governing body has revealed that the DRS zone will be positioned just after turn four and will include the kink leading onto the Wellington straight, with the detection zone being placed just before the entry to turn three.

FIA race director Charlie Whiting had hinted that a second zone could be placed on the old start/finish straight but the decision has now been taken to revert back to the single zone seen in the first six races of the season.

Both the Canadian and European Grands Prix featured two DRS zones, albeit to mixed results.

DRS zone may aswell be the pitlane! That is where positions are gained and lost in the race! Like you andrew. i am not a fan of it either! On a serious note, Technology is ruining the sport. Take away all these gizmos and let the drivers skill do the talking!
