The Drag Reduction System activation zone for this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix will be shortly before Turn 11 at Istanbul Park.

After activation, the system will stay open until the drivers reach the braking zone at Turn 12.

The FIA also confirmed that the detection point for the device will start just before the braking zone at Turn 9, which means that drivers will once again not have the full length of the longest straight on the track to use the devices.

The adjustable rear wings have been a labelled a huge success my most drivers and have certainly played a major role in the record number of overtaking moves in the first three races of the season.

According to reports, F1 fans have witnessed almost 150 passes so far this year with 63 of them coming at the Chinese Grand Prix.
