DRS has improved the racing no end. Apart from a few teams it gives everybody the same opportunities and if it gives us some overtaking then it can't be bad.
Fans want to see overtaking, not just a high speed procession. With the one move rule we now really need DRS.

I don't get how the rule is any different to what it was last year. I was watching the 2011 Canadian GP yesterday and the racing director decided when it was safe to enable DRS during the switchover from inters to slicks.

Buzz 45, I am an F1 fan/follower, have been for a very long time, I do like overtaking, who doesn't? But not artificial overtaking, in fact when nowadays I see an overtake effected by DRS IT PAINS ME.
But then what does one except from somebody which comes on here and says that the DRS is more needed now that we have the one move (defending) rule!!!

You might as well save money on DRS and just blue-flag any car that is less than 1 second ahead of the one behind and call it a day.

This type of racing is artificial, you want to avoid high-speed possessions? Then stop "racing" on 80% of Tilke's so called circuits and you will see overtaking...

Flyinggacedude, and how can you say that DRS is not a gimmick when the driver that wishes to effect a pass can press a button to do so while the driver being passed can only sit in the water like a duck.
Liking such unfair gimmicks in F1 racing goes some way in showing the quality of oneself.

They can save KERS until the DRS straight, build a 1 second gap or do a defensive manouver. Its just a more effective system for reducing drag than drafting and safer. It increases overtaking and mixes the stategy up a bit. Thats why I love F1 because its constantly changing the rules and keeping it exciting. I bet you're the sort of simpleton that dislikes any change ever.

Flyinggacedude, what a coincidence, as I am convinced of your stupidity, this modern stupidity claiming to be following F1 is one reason why the FIA was sure that the unfair DRS gimmick will pleases your type
