Overtaking is likely to be more of a challenge at Suzuka this year after the FIA decided to shorten the DRS zone.

The activation zone for the Japanese Grand Prix will once again be on the start/finish straight, but the overtaking area has been cut by 20m to ensure that passing remains challenging through Turns 1 and 2.

The detection point remains 50m before the Casio Triangle chicane at Turn 16, with the activation point on the exit of Turn 18.

Race officials have also resurfaced the whole West Course (from Turn 7 until after the chicane) and installed new storm water drainage systems after the region was hit by Typhoon Jelawat in recent weeks.
