mcLaren are set to utilise a double-DRS system at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix.
Both Mercedes and Lotus have been developing the technology, with the German team frequently using it during the opening months of the campaign.
Now McLaren are set to use their own take on the system which should improve the straight line speed and overtaking ability of the MP4-27.
However, sporting director, Sam Michael, is adamant that the gadget is not merely a carbon copy if their rivals’ developments.
“It’s not like the Lotus one, but we are studying such a system.” He told F1Today.net
Lotus are set to use their double-DRS for the first time under race conditions at Spa, having previously tested it at Hungary during practice.
McLaren will now utilise the technology, although it is unclear how much of a role it will play over the weekend.
McLaren are enjoying a slight revival of late after a disappointing first half of the season.
Jenson Button raced to second spot in Germany, whilst Lewis Hamilton secured maximum points in the last race at the Hungaroring.
