    I noticed in race that the AI have DRS when they shouldn't. For example im sure i saw the AI have DRS down the back straight (DTM14) before the last chicane, i can never get it here.
    Also on the start straight, i noticed the AI have DRS quicker, (straight off the corner) unlike me when i get it when i cross the line, which seems pointless as not enough run off untill the corner.

    Are these the official DRS zones?

    Is there a way to disable DRS only?

  2. There is no official DRS zone in the DTM, you can use whenever you want.
    Best place is the back straight.

    thx peter...
    but i cant use it whenever only, on the pit straight if im right behind an AI.

    Yep, DRS rules in DTM is a little different to F1.

    A quick question though.....do the AI always (and only) use DRS in the best place or are they programmed to also use it on a shorter straight to make an overtake?

    You have to be within two seconds behind another car at the start-finish line to activate DRS for that lap.

    oh i see, i think i know what im doing!!

    when i see the green drs i press it (pit straight) so i wont get for the rest of the lap..

    lol i thought it was the same as F1

    thanks for the clarification guys :)

    just to add, with my ffb finally set up, im absolutly loving rre at the moment,!!

  7. Sure you can, be within 2 seconds on the start/finish line and you can use it 1 time wherever you want.

    Also DRS is disabled for the first and last couple laps of the race.

    In my experience DRS is activated after the third lap and is available until the end of the race.

    You're correct. Just checked.
  11. Imo there is some kind of bug with the DRS as it doesn't seem to work when overlapping cars. E.g. I can remember a MP race at Brands Hatch where I was on 2nd position and sb who was 1 lap behind started to battle with me the last 2 or 3 rounds. No DRS available.

  12. I have seen the AI using the DRS on different straights on every circuit. And the same AI may even use the DRS on two or three different spots on the same race - so it varies.
