The United States Grand Prix will feature a single drag-reduction zone, the governing body has confirmed.
Formula One will return to the USA for the first time in five years at a purpose built facility in Austin, Texas. The new track is made up of 20 corners making up a total distance of 5.516 km (3.4 miles).
The single DRS zone will be located along the back straight - the longest on the circuit. Whilst the exact distances are yet to be confirmed until Wednesday, it's expected detection will be just before turn 11, with activation 650 metres before the hairpin turn 12.
