    What a great idea! let the car get past on the first DRS then let tghem get further away on the second! I thought the DRS last year would have told them this?!

    DRS only works well if the car using DRS has enough time to keep it activated… In other words the straight has to be long enough to allow a DRS pass. Dont think melbourne offers too much in that respect. Of course this year if the cars are closely matched in performance then we might see a little more DRS passes.
    But the idea of having a single detection point for more than one DRS activation zones is not fair. That just puts the defending driver in a more helpless situation. With the additional rule allowing the defending driver to move away from the racing line only once, this form of DRS only makes the defending driver a sitting duck.
    Looks like the FIA are just interested in seeing overtakes being made on the track no matter how silly they look!!
