Nick said he picked it up from his old days using traction control. Also that Merc use a third pedal for DRS. The KERS pedal or additional length in the pedal seems to me a good way to get a stuck throttle.

Yep, saw the mention of the Merc pedal but am not too sure where the advantage is with that. Throttle and brake pedal under each foot so how do they operate the DRS pedal?

I think that the KERS activation would be similar to the kickdown mechanism on an automatic.

Keep dreaming Nick!In the next few races Ferrari will challenge McLaren and then Red Bull for race victories.So in order to beat Ferrari,you should rise up your game until Renault will be able to finish ahead of the McLarens and challenge the Bulls for victory.
