THIRD DRS ZONE ADDED TO THE BAHRAIN CIRCUIT
The Bahrain circuit has added a third DRS zone ahead of this weekends second race of the 2019 Formula 1 season.
For the last two years, the race has featured two zones, with activation on the main pit straight and the back straight linking Turns 10 and 11 this year a new zone has been added into Turn 4 with the detection point for the new zone placed just 50 metres before the first corner.
The new zone will give drivers another chance to immediately attack again using DRS if they are not quite close enough to make a pass into the first corner.
This seasons new car designs should encourage more overtaking so the effect of DRS should be more powerful because of the bigger rear wings that have been introduced.
