Shanghai adopts two DRS zones for 2013
10 April 2013 – The Chinese Grand Prix will feature two DRS zones for the first time in its short history this season, with the FIA opting to place an additional area along the main straight.
Following on from Sepang, this weekend's race will also feature two detection points. The first line is placed at Turn 12, with the activation area situated along the back straight. A second detection line has then been placed before the entry to Turn 16, with DRS permitted - if inside the one second window - on the run to the first corner.
As per the regulations, DRS is also restricted to the dedicated zones during practice and qualifying in 2013, as opposed to last year when the device could be used freely.
