Formula F1 Drama: Get ready for some high-speed drama! The Singapore Grand Prix is just around the corner, and the topic on everyone’s lips is the possibility of introducing a Drag Reduction System (DRS) zone on the new section of the track. But this decision wasn’t an easy one to make, thanks to a few complicating factors.
Firstly, there was a tricky kink early in the straight, the road’s crown, and the circuit’s bumpy nature, all of which made adding a DRS zone a challenging decision. You may also read Federal Judge Deals Blow to DACA Program.
In June, the FIA sought feedback from teams through simulations, but many were focused on upcoming races and didn’t prioritize Singapore. As a result, the decision was made not to proceed with the additional DRS zone.
However, as race drivers began testing the new track section on team simulators, they questioned the absence of a DRS zone.
They expressed their concerns upon arriving at the track, and the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA) sent a unanimous letter to the FIA, voicing their support for the addition of an extra DRS zone.
The matter was discussed during a meeting of team managers, and despite the logistical challenges associated with implementing a new DRS zone at the last minute, the FIA called for a vote among the teams. Four teams voted against the addition of the extra zone, but the drama didn’t end there.
During the practice sessions, drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc maintained their early dominance, with Sainz setting a lap time of 1m34.150s on medium tires. You should also check Unbelievable Mortal Kombat 1 Early.

With all this excitement, who knows what will happen next? Stay tuned for more updates on the Singapore Grand Prix!
