Vettel questions new DRS zone at Silverstone

Sebastian Vettel has questioned the FIA's decision to include fast corners in the new DRS zone at Silverstone.

Normally, a DRS zone is a straight line simply to improve chasing cars' overtaking chances.

But for the British grand prix, a third DRS zone will include Silverstone's first two fast corners, Abbey and Farm.

"I'm a little confused," said Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

"I don't know what the intention is. We are talking about something only the cars with the biggest downforce will be able to do.

"If anything, this could just be an advantage for Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull, and I doubt that is the intention. So I don't quite understand," he added.

Oh htey just want to spice up the show, but do it in sorta synthetic ways. The previous DRS zone amounts were fine, more werent necessary, but might improve overtaking.

I would like to see some overtaking on those high speed curves, can't really call them corners anymore.

Was Mercedes right to use team orders during the Russian Grand Prix?
