Three DRS zones will remain for the Singapore Grand Prix giving drivers plenty of opportunities to carry out overtakes around the fast street circuit.

The race was last held in 2019 when a third DRS was added on the exit of Turn 13, to help aid drivers get closer as they head into the second sector.

The other zones are located 50m after Turn 5 and 45m after Turn 23 on the start/finish straight.

While the Singapore circuit is the second slowest of the year after Monaco, top speeds are expected to exceed 310kph thanks to the DRS detection points according to Ferrari.

Increase in DRS zones led to more overtaking

In the last 12 Singapore Grand Prix's just an average number of 25 overtake moves have occurred.

The increase in DRS zones in 2019 led to the largest number of position changes happening, with 59 overtakes in the race won by Sebastian Vettel.

This a contrast to 2009 when there was just three overtakes in the race that was eventually won by Lewis Hamilton.
