Remember though that the cars strategy and tyres was called before the lack of DRS was known.AMG.Tzan wrote: ↑Mon Dec 02, 2019 1:06 pmPerez's move on Norris and Sainz's move on Hulkenberg on the last lap both needed a lot more precision and skill even with DRS, than Bottas's move! Leclerc's move you refer to was one of the best i've seen the whole season...he had to work that outside line which is not easy and he at least had a chance to fight back after being overtaken!langedweil wrote: ↑Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:29 amYou really mean that !?
In my opinion drs is boring as f ...
It is easily the main divider between top 3 and midfield. For instance, it took Bottas a good couple of laps to pass the Renault simply because he had to execute all preparation perfect to being able to pass the renault. Passed made were so much more driver skill, and a whole lot better than just pushing a button against a sitting duck.
If you look at Lec's attempt to re-pass Max at the backstraight; he was about 5/6 carlengths behind after the left/right corners, but with just a push of a button he was next to Max by the end of that straight ...
DRS, please leave ...
Without DRS nothing of that would have happened!
The work of DRS is to bring a driver to within striking distance at the end of the straight...without DRS drivers just weren't close enough to make a move even on much slower cars and that is not about driver skill...it's about who's got more power and/or less drag...remember Alonso vs Petrov!
I don't think Alonso or his Ferrari weren't good enough to pass Petrov in a Renault! Renault just had too much top speed that year for anyone to pass them down a straight...just like Ferrari this year! This is where DRS comes in...it would have given Alonso a chance at least!
And to be clear i am not in favor of a too powerful DRS...i said above what is the logic behind DRS for me and F1 has shown us that they can get it right in many tracks just by playing with the DRS zone distance!
If it had been planned, and the cars allowed adjustments in aero I think it may have been a better effort.
I have to put my cards on the table though and admit to being anti DRS as the car design favours it over close racing.
