The Chinese Grand Prix will feature a single drag reduction zone this weekend in the same position as 2011, though a little shorter following feedback.
The detection point will be between turns 12 and 13 before drivers can 'open' their rear-wing half way down the back straight, one of the longest on the calendar.
The activation zone has been reduced in length by around 50m following analysis of the 2011 race.
