The Austrian Red Bull Ring will feature an additional DRS zone to encourage overtaking, so has the FIA revealed. This third DRS zone has been added after turn 1, which should allow cars to run closer to each other ahead of the sharp right hander in turn 3.

Charlie Whiting, FIA race director, said: “We have added one DRS zone in Austria. We have three detection points, three activation points, and the new one is between turns 1 and 3.”

The two current DRS zones at the Red Bull Ring will remain unchanged. One is at the start-finish straight and the other after turn 3.
