Two DRS zones retained for Melbourne
11 March 2014 – The season-opening Australian Grand Prix will again feature two DRS zones, the FIA has confirmed.
As per the past two seasons, the governing body has placed one activation point just before the apex of Turn 14, with separate activation areas following along the start-finish straight and between Turns 2 and 3.
Drivers will be able to freely use DRS in the designated zones throughout free practice and qualifying sessions, although they must be within a second of a car ahead to deploy the overtaking device on race day.
This season, the DRS flap is permitted to open as wide as 65mm, 15mm more than the 2013 campaign.
