i was in the monaco gp and i noticed that the drs was easy to avoid cause you can easy boost away on the strait what makes it harder so its than real hard to overtake so my suggestion is make a drs detection zone that isnt on a strait and if you do that can you please make that you have the option to make the drs detection zone visible.

This is not an issue, yes it might be slightly annoying but they are wasting their boost which means later on in the race you can boost right past them. I don't know if you have played F1 2019 but if you use lots of ers you can pull away from the car behind and not allow them to get drs.

That's called strategy.  If it works out for them, fine.  If it only delays the inevitable, fine.  If they fail to deny the chasing car DRS anyway, fine.  Besides that, you should eventually learn and remember where all the DRS zones are after a race or two at each track.

If anything, they should update each pre-race track map to show where its zone is.

Is the current DRS zone based on the real circuit DRS zones? And why is ther only 1 per track while in the real circuit there are 2 or sometimes 3.

There is only 1 drs zone per circuit not to make people with low level drs get absolutely stomped on by level 20 managers. To balance the game basically

Actually every circuits have their own hidden DRS detection zone (ex: Austria detection zone is huge, on the other side, Japan detection zone is small), I agree that the devs should showed up the DRS detection zone.

I'm writing this just to make clear for everyone: Currently, there is no DRS detection zone. Your gap is measured at the moment you cross the DRS starting line (which is hidden as Lai pointed out). If gap in that location is higher than 1.0s, you won't have it.

I agree with Sven, DRS should be detected before its straight.

I thought positional gaps were measured sector by sector, not lap by lap. Therefore it would be the gap at the end of the sector closest to the DRS zone that would be used to determine DRS usage...

He meant the DRS starting line which isn't shown nor the times at the moment you cross it

Yes it does.


My point, though, is that the programners and devs would have used the closest sector timing line as the DRS detection line, therefore making the distance between the detection line and DRS straight up to 1/3 of the lap length.  That would also NOT make the DRS detection line hidden, considering that the sector timing lines are known points.
Devs would have done this as a best compromise to make programming easier 

Considering this, in hindsught, I would agree that moving DRS detection lines to 100m before the bend before the DRS straight would be a good idea.

No, the detection line is indeed the starting line of the DRS zone. Noticable by boosting after the last sector time before DRS showing +1 second in order to catch DRS and indeed catching it. Or Monaco with loosing it in those last corners before it.

In things to make it visible, I believe a suggestion to make DRS zone, as well as finish line, visible was approved a while ago.

He's suggesting that, so there's no need to answer "no" =)

Ups, somehow I misread the post as how it is, not as how it should be.
