Overtaking has been devalued.
The spectacle of a successfully holding off his rivals diminished.
Passing at the push of a button is fundamentally wrong for F1.
The front driver is totally defenceless, it is just not right, this is not F1.

I still think that DRS should be unlimited, and gets turned off if a driver is less than a second behind you...

That way you are not punishing the leader for doing the best job.
Like it is now. That system would truly be one of skill.

ive quite enjoyed all this drs nonesense this year... if the defenceless driver has been quick enough he's been able to come back at the overtaker on the following lap. we've certainly had some races made more entertaining by the addition.. acid test would be Bahrain i suppose. but even Abu Dhabi was an ok race this year.. I dare say Alonso wished he'd had drs the year before being stuck behind Petrov all those laps...

Agree with 107SS, races like the recent San Marino races between Schumacher and Alonso, along with Schumacher against all comers in Canada 2004 will be things of distant memory.

DRS is a joke. The solution is to reduce aero effects for everyone so that the car behind can mechanically hold its line even when closely behind at high speed corners. Let's go back to the aero levels of the late 80's or early 90's. Even GP2 and Indycar are more fun to watch, with no artificial overtaking. F1 is doomed.

The rules for next year has further reduced what some calls blocking and some calls holding some one behind and still some others call the art of being able to hold some one behind.
I suppose that SOME particular Lulu fanatics will be Happier next year with less chances of Lulu having to bump others of the track when trying to overtake others, and these same Lulu fanatics will have more chances to tell us what an art Lulu have for overtaking without even scratching the paint of an other car.
