It's going to be crazy the shorter the track the smaller the time difference. I think the whole field will be spread by about 3/4ths of a second.
If there is a DRS train, the one at the front will be a sitting duck unless they trim all the wing out, but if they trim the wing out of the car you'll qualify down the order.
I think pole is going to be massively important. The first two laps allow the leader to try to get out of DRS range. If he can do that, he ought to be able to romp away. As you go back though the field it's just going to be a DRS train with positions swapping around and the guy at the front of each group swapping each lap.
I wonder if we'll see some good old fashioned brake checking to try to put off the following drivers. Pick the right corner to just suddenly be a deal slower and the cars behind will be avoiding each other whilst you whizz away out of range. Get it wrong and you'll be swamped, however.
What will happen by the end is that the cars will be roughly in their qualifying order as the faster cars will have more chance of breaking the DRS train off their tails. The lower end of the field will either have a great time scrapping for the whole race, or very quickly end up watching it from behind a barrier somewhere after tangling.
If you are more fortunate than others, build a larger table not a taller fence.
