F1 » Button: DRS will spice up Abu Dhabi


Jenson Button: It's usually been quite difficult to overtake here, especially last year, but I think that DRS will change all that. The back straight is one of the longest in F1 so I expect to see a lot of action there...

DRS is the most Unfair and one sided press to pass button/gimmick ever, it degrades both the drivers and car capabilities but found to have ticklish/d the souls of some (a lot, may be the majority) of those that WATCH F1 racing but is regarded as an unfair gimmick by real FI followers, it was felt to have been an urgent necessity in an attempt to spice up the dwindling interest in F1, this dwindling/declining interest was totally of the FIA'S own making, it came about as a result of the FIA arbitrary rules restricting/limiting/restraining the technology and innovative drive/race of FI engineers to such an extent that some were calling the F1 car as a one make specification series, at one time there was the wish to even have engines called world engine, a one make of a proprietary design.

Preseason everyone was cautiously optimistic that the DRS would help "true" racers not suffer so much from a bad quali session and that the creme would eventually find its way to the top. This hasn't been the case and now because everyone's favorite can't seem to put a whole weekend together everyone is now complaining about how fake it is blah blah blah, my comments got moderated at a reputable site once because I pointed out fans perception of the success of the DRS and new tires is directly related to how many times it has helped Lewis. Post china for example everyone was on cloud nine about the "new" more exiting era of formula 1, commenting on how superior it was to the other opening rounds and yet if you look at the numbers, there was no more overtaking or battles than the other rounds. Same goes for spa and monza, two amazing races that were written off as boring and contrived by the Hamilton loyal despite being generally recognized as two great races.... Facts and logic are

DRS has definitely helped in increasing overtaking this year but in Montreal and Spa it became a little too easy. DRS is welcome but I hope FIA keep a limit on the number of times it can be used in the race. I remember that in the now-defunct A1GP the drivers could use the push-to-pass 8 times in the main race and the strategies used by the drivers in wisely using the 8 opportunities made the races really exciting. That kind of thing could work in F1

Maybe it is your mind which is confused.
You don't like DRS, so you want to go back to boring processional races where nobody can overtake because the aero does not allow them to get close enough?
We've seen some fantastic racing this year and if DRS helps you get past the guy in front, it can, a few corners later, help him get back past you.

Certainly in Monaco and India Massa turned into Hamilton. Look at the vids and it is absolutely clear for all to see, except for those who don't want to.
Herbert is right, Massa could have avoided the crash but he did not. He is not too bright is he? You'd think by now he would know such action means the end of his race. Simple really, make way for the faster car or crash. His days in the Red car are done, they need a racer with a brain.
