yes, exactly. Therefore it has no purpose, no place for it in racing. Overtake just for the sake of overtaking? What the hell kind of racing is that? Don’t you see there’s a proportion between overtaking difficulty and overtaking value? The harder it is, the more value it has; Equally the easier it is, the less value it has. Being honest, nowadays I’m yawning during overtakings: if the race commentators don’t even raise the voice to report an overtaking, something is not right, right?
More, in practice, ends up, at the end of the day, being an advantage just to the already faster cars. Why? If for some reason a slower car is in front of a faster car, there’s nothing it can do to stay ahead, while after being overtaken it can’t answer in the same manner because the faster car has the ability to pull off. So in a normal race we have the 6 faster cars in the final 6 first places; When something happens like in Canada (rain) that mixes up the things, 10 laps of DRS are enough to restore the order. Is that what you want? Or do you think that without DRS Schumacher wasn’t able to mantain that 2nd place?
But we don’t even have to go this way. It’s enough to say that it’s effectivelly a way of two drivers have unequal terms on a race which is just against the principles of racing.
P.S. If they really want a DRS gizmo, a button for them to press, I would be able to accept something like “each driver has 10 DRS activations for each race, using them in whatever way he wants”, this way there’s not the stupidity of being a sitting duck without being able to respond. If one driver uses all of them and then gets then overtaken by DRS, at least they started on equal terms, no injustice there.
