Formula 1 will trial the DRS zone that will go through the banked final turn of Zandvoort for the second year in a row.
As a part of the renovation of Zandvoort, the final turn of the track called Arie Luyendyk Bocht got an 18-degree banking. F1 tested the usage of the DRS through the corner last year. However, the idea was scrapped for safety reasons.
F1 decided to repeat the experiment this year because of a lack of action in the 2021 race.
“The current position is that we are going to have the DRS ahead of the final corner, so early on, to improve a bit the racing in Zandvoort,” FIA single-seater technical director Nikolas Tombazis told Viaplay.
“But we are keeping an open mind on that, and we will be asking teams for their feedback. We’ve asked them already in simulations, but also after FP1 we will be asking teams for their feedback.
“And if we feel that there is any, even a remote, risk for the safety, then clearly we would have to take action and change it after FP1.”
