Jenson you are the best driver out there, you just need a bit of luck. This season Vetel has had more luck than he needs, he has been lucky in all the races just look at Monaco. All the best at Monza. Regards John

I hope the DRS activation line is well down the straights. We don't want to see cars overtaking on the straight and be 50 yards past the car they're overtaking before the next braking zone. Overtaking should be difficult and hard earned. Is DRS even needed at Monza, especially with the Pirelli tyre's this year?

Both DRS and KERS are artificial push to pass buttons and so they are both drivers aid which were implemented to spice up the racing, they degrade both the driver and car capabilities, the DRS is not only a push to pass button but an unfair one at that.

If DRS could be used to defend (unless when someone is being lapped) it would be better but it is just a case of all the thrill of the chase and then push the magic button(s) and there's your pass. Totally artificial.

And there are going to be 2 DRS zones at Monza! Why? they don'teven need 1 here!

DRS should be reversed in its activation scheme...

Instead of being turned on for the following driver for a set place on track, it should be available at all times to all drivers, but if someone gets withing the 1s activation zone, the lead car has theirs disabled until the end of the zone.

I dont like giving one car an advantage, but I would be much happier taking an advantage away...

PS: That would also help the leader of the race, since by its current implementation, it gives every non-leading car a serious laptime advantage for being a slower car!

Yeah, lets go back to blocking. This would be a great way to revive Trulli's career. If someone is under one second behind you, then you are slower. A free pass is much better than creative driving. If your that damn good keep a one second gap and the crap won't happen to you. Simple...even Vettel gets it.
