  1. Okay, so if you need 1.5 seconds to make a pass stick, how much time does the DRS offer?

  2. Sorry, cant view the video. When does the ARW deactivate after a pass. The moment the driver overtakes or at the end of the straight?

    I seriously dont get why they have reintroduced KERS though, just another distraction for the drivers to deal with. Should of been one or another although KERS limited like DRS. Having it non limited renders it pointless imo.

    1. The rear wing drops as soon as they hit the brake pedal. Or it can be dropped by the driver if he pushes the button a second time.

  3. Cheers Bas,

    Whats the chances of getting a pass around Circuit de Catalunya?? lol.

    1. I think it might be just a tad higher whit these rear wings and some faster drivers finding themselves behind slower ones due to pitstop strategy.

      Still not too much hope of seeing heaps of them, rather seeing the cars in heaps if it goes wrong ;-)

    2. So long as they don’t use the main straight as the zone, the cars would never get to within a second of each other coming out of the chicane. Hard to see any part of the circuit where they would, actually!

  4. red bull should add this blue effects to it’s livery.

  5. Funny they use Youtube to promo. this,but if you post any thing from a real GP….B.E. is all up in arms about it.

  6. Since K.E.R.S. got Kers as it’s name, do we call D.R.S. something like Drs?
