Double DRS returns in India

The FIA announces a double DRS zone for the Indian Grand Prix
The FIA has confirmed that the inaugural Indian Grand Prix this weekend will feature a double DRS zone, as was the case in a number of events earlier in the year.

The races in Canada, Valencia and Italy all featured two DRS zones, with India being similar to Monza in that the two DRS zones will feature separate detection points.

The detection point for the first zone will come just after the penultimate corner at turn 15 with the activation point coming shortly after the driver enter the start/finish straight.

The detection point for the second zone will then come just before the entry to turn three, with the activation point coming on the long back straight before the drivers head into the slow right-hander at turn four.

What's wrong with it? It enables passing without forcing F1 to kill the car's aero so they can draft properly, it allows out of place good cars and drivers to recover position to make for a better race and it adds a very interesting strategic element during the race that compliments the new tire's effects on pit stops. S'all good IMHO. Can you honestly say that we would have seen Jenson Button's Magnum Opus in Canada without it? Would you really have wanted to miss that?

@107SS2009 And if you are smart, you see that car in your mirrors and use your KERS wisely to defend in the DRS zone. If your KERS isn't enough, you are holding up and wrecking other driver's races. We just have to decide if we want to allow the cream to rise to the top or have it shoved under the fat. I chose to cream.
