DRS remains a bone of contention for many and is a frequent source of debate in our post-race ‘Rate the Race’ features.

F1 teams have indicated they’re willing to listen to fans on devices introduced to improve ‘the show’ such as DRS. With that in mind, is DRS needed at every track on the calendar?

Should F1 try running without DRS at some tracks? Is it not needed anywhere? Or does every F1 circuit need a DRS zone? Cast your vote below.

    I would prefer none but if it is to stick the spanish tracks abu dhabi and hungary are must have DRS zone tracks.

    Anyone considered having DRS used like in FR3.5? Where you get seven minutes and thirty seconds of anywhere use?

    How about they create variable DRS zones?
    DRS zones that randomly changed their length during the course of the race.

    We would see HRTs getting past the RedBulls… haha

    DRS is silly. The majority of ‘fans’ these days think F1 should be like an arcade game, with an overtake every second. I happily voted ‘none’.
