For the opening race of this year, the FIA has reduced the length of one of the three DRS zones at the Bahrain International Circuit.
In the upcoming season-opening grand prix at Bahrain International Circuit, the FIA has adjusted the DRS zones.
According to the latest updates, the first DRS zone between turns three and four and the second one on the straight between turns 10 and 11 will remain unchanged.
However, the longest DRS zones on the straight pit have been modified. The activation point has been shifted 80 meters further down the straight, while the overall length of the zone remains the same.

The FIA and F1 have recently disclosed their plan to modify the DRS zones at four upcoming grand prix circuits: Jeddah Corniche Circuit, Albert Park in Melbourne, Baku, and Miami.
The objective behind this move is to make overtaking more or less challenging at these tracks based on the outcome of the previous year’s races.
To achieve this, they will adjust the position of “detection and activation zones” at the tracks, and in Melbourne, they will reintroduce a fourth DRS zone.
