sunny. and the fact that they are having two zones at every race (bar 2) poves that. the cars are now so close in performance , there would be no passes without an artificial aid. the answer seems to be to open up the regs, to allow for innovatio that will provide differences in performance.

BRING BACK PROPER RACING!

there would be no need for drs if a few of the drivers would recognize when they had lost a position (ie testosterone takes over)
If the teams sent the repair bill to any driver culpable in causing the wreckage, drs wouldn't be needed

DRS is an artificial drivers aid?

You mean like semi automatic gear boxes, down force producing wings, power steering, brake bias adjustment, pit to car radio communication?

Give it a rest.

Anyone who thinks that DRS is bad for F1 I suggest going back to watch the F1 from 'the good old days' when they had 'real racing'.

20 or 30 laps watching a much faster car stuck behind a slower car because it couldn't get any closer than 0.5-1 seconds to it - YEAH, PROPER RACING!

A definite cure for any insomniacs out there!

The only problem with DRS is that there is no skill involved to use it.

If it was unlimited, the drivers skill would shine through, and it would just be epic to see who has the brass.

DRS is a totally artificial gimmick which is killing my interest in F1.

There's nothing exciting about watching a driver push a button & then cruise easily past the lead car half way down a straght.
DRS does nothing but produce boring, unexciting & totally skill-less drive-by highway passes!
