The FIA have announced that there will be only one DRS zone at this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix.

There was the potential for two zones as had been implemented in the season-opening Australian race, with two long straights back-to-back, but the officials have decided that one zone will be enough to aid overtaking.

The detection point is located 207 metres before the final hairpin with the activation point straight after the corner, meaning the drivers will be able to use the rear-wing stalling device for the full length of the long pit straight.

That's the same as in 2011, when there were 18 overtakes using DRS during the race.
