Comment of the day
Why those who are hoping F1’s rules overhaul will mean an end to DRS may be disappointed:
This is F1 – they stick to their guns. DRS is here to stay and they won’t budge on that (it’s even been drip fed to GP2).
They don’t like getting to the root of the problem, they have a reputation for pasting over the cracks, and this will be no exception.
DRS is here to stay, so let’s at least bolt some downforce back on and make these cars look a little more reasonable!
