    I think the new engines have lessened the DRS effect quite dramatically. With the old V8s, the cars hit the top speeds a lot quicker with the DRS open and half way down the straight, the cars hit the terminal velocity. With the new engines, the cars are still accelerating to the top speed just as they arrive at the braking zone. Somehow, it’s lessened the DRS effect. If the engines are more powerful this year, then the DRS could be lessened even more

    For 2003

    “What if Raikkonen’s engine hadn’t blown up at the Nurburgring and had gone on to win that race?”

    For 1999

    “What if Heinz-Harald Frentzen’s car didn’t pack up whilst leading at the Nurburgring? And at the same race, what if Ferrari hadn’t botched Irvine’s pit-stop?”

    Best – Vettel’s donuts.

    Worst – Everything else

    This season has put me off F1 so much and sadly I don’t see it improving any time soon.

    I remember Ferrari ran some sort of moveable floor in the first race 2007 which promptly got banned for the next race after a rules clarification, so I think it’s old news.

    Am I right in saying that Markus Winkelhock is the only driver to have led every race he’s started?

    Raikkonen’s move on Perez after Rivage or Esteban Gutierrez scrapping with Maldonado from the exit of Stavelot all the way to the Bus Stop would be my two candidates

    I remember a Budweiser advert sometime in 2004 where Marc Gene, the Williams test driver struggled to lap a circuit in the shape of a Budweiser symbol (It was shot at Silverstone) but I can’t find that advert anywhere.

    Penalty aside, Grosjean’s move on Massa was incredible.

    If we’re not allowing good overtakes that were penalised, then Hamilton’s second move on Webber coming out of turn 2 just after his final pit stop.

    @joeyz-f1 – I personally don’t have anything against it because it was before my time but whenever I read discussions of bad F1 tracks, Nivelles always seems to come up. I’ve read that the track was not particular fan friendly and considered to be too safe for F1, and that was in the 1970s as well.

    I’m surprised I haven’t seen the Nivelles-Baulers circuit pop up here yet

    Two options

    1. If a drivers are under a certain time behind another driver, lets say half a second, then either both or neither can use DRS

    2. GET RID OF DRS!!

    Thank you all for your entries.

    If we are going by the 2 choices, then my two favourites are @white-flight and @prisoner-monkeys.

    If it were down to me, I would go for P.M’s design – Just that bit more flowing.
