The FIA has modified the DRS zones for this weekend's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, leaving drivers with two activation points.

In 2018, drivers could use their Drag Reduction System on the main straight, but that zone has now been discarded.

Instead, an activation point located before Turn 1 will allow driver to deploy DRS right after Hockenheim's first corner all the way to Turn 2.

The second DRS zone will start right after Turn 4 and run all the way down to Hockenheim's Turn 6 hairpin, where most of the overtaking is expected to take place on Sunday.

While scorching heat is expected this weekend in the Mannheim area - not exactly Mercedes' preferred outlook given the cooling issues encountered by its W10 in Austria, race day could prove entertaining with a risk of rain currently forecast for Sunday afternoon.
