The FIA has announced that DRS zone for the Japanese Grand Prix will be shorter for this year's race.
The ruling body has decided to shorten the zone by 20 meters compared to last year, when the detection point was 70 meters after Turn 15 and the activation point 30 meters after Turn 18.
For this year's event, however, the detection zone will be 50m before Turn 16 and the activation zone is at the Control Line after Turn 18.
In 2010, before DRS was introduced in F1, there were seven overtaking moves completed at Suzuka. Last year, in contrast, there were 59 on-track changes of position.
