winning formula What is DRS in F1? All you need to know about Drag Reduction System

FORMULA ONE cars are packed with gadgets to make them go as fast as possible across the tarmac. Here, we tell you everything you need to know about the Drag Reduction System (DRS). This is a method used by F1 drivers to follow their rivals more closely and therefore overtake them. When in a DRS zone, a driver within one second of a rival car may activate the DRS. This is not automatic and a driver usually has a button on their steering wheel to activate the system. There is at least one DRS zone on each track in F1 but some have as many as three to help to overtake. They must be within one second of a car in front to be able to use the DRS.
