F1: Two DRS zones at Sochi Autodrom for Russian Grand Prix

The new Sochi Autodrom, home of the Russian Grand Prix, will feature two DRS zones.

So far, the 18-corner Sochi layout has been likened to a mix between the Valencia Street Circuit and the Korean International Circuit.

Blending medium and low-speed corners with two long fast sections, the signature corner may turn out to be the long, fast, left-hand arc around the Medal Arena.

The circuit will feature two Drag Reduction System zones.

The first detection point will be just after the start-finish line with the activation point located just after Turn 1.

The second detection point will be before Turn 9, with the detection point just after the same corner.
