A single DRS zone will be used when Formula 1 visits Mugello for the first time this weekend.
The only zone at Mugello will be located on the long, slightly curving pit straight. Drivers will only be able to activate DRS for around two-thirds of the straight’s length, as the activation point will be after the pit lane entrance, 290 metres after the exit of the preceding corner.
At the end of the DRS zone drivers will brake into the slowest corner on the circuit, San Donato. The detection point for the zone will be at the entrance to the last corner, Bucine, which is turn 15.
Several F1 drivers have warned overtaking is likely to be very difficult around the 5.2-kilometre track.
“It may not be the best for racing,” said Lando Norris. “I don’t know if you’ll probably see any overtakes between turn one and the last corner. So I think it’s almost going to be Hungary-esque in some ways.
“But at the same time it’s an awesome track so qualifying, I think, will be incredible.”
