Double DRS zone retained for Melbourne
12 March 2013 – The Australian Grand Prix will again feature two DRS zones in 2013, with governing body the FIA retaining the same detection and activation points used last season.
If drivers are within one second of the car ahead at the detection point just before Turn 14, they will be able to use DRS along the pit straight and between Turns 3 and 4.
The DRS regulations have been tweaked for the 2013 campaign, with its use now restricted to a dedicated area throughout Grand Prix weekends. In 2012, drivers were permitted to use the system freely during all practice and qualifying sessions.
