Yes, and yes. The purists have their arguments, and I can relate to them as well, but for me, both issues are just one more regulation that all teams have to deal with. If DRS and the wacky tire wear are just plain wrong, then KERS should also go. We have had three great seasons while DRS has been active, and the last two with Pirelli have also been spectacular (well last year's SV walkover wasn't so hot, but still some great racing). When ever I talk to Nascrap fans about F1 they ALWAYS cite the perceived processional nature of the sport, the Pirellis and DRS have changed that paradigm, and for the better. FIA just need to get better at tuning the DRS zones in conjunction with the tire choices for each track, but overall I think they are doing a fairly good job.
