The Drag Reduction System zone for Sunday's British Grand Prix is assigned at the same section of the circuit as last year.

The DRS will be detected 25m before Turn 3 at Village with the activation coming into play 45m after Turn 4 at The Loop, which is the new section of the Silverstone layout.

DRS-assisted overtaking opportunities will hence be available through Turn 5 at Aintree all the way up to Turn 6 at Brooklands.

"Its length is quite limited which means overtaking is not so easy," reckoned Sauber's head of track engineering Giampaolo Dall’Ara.

DRS can be used in the said section only during the race although the rear-wing flap can be activated throughout the course of the 5.89km track during the practice and qualifying sessions.
