Hamilton discussed with stewards concerning the use of DRS
Following rain-interrupted practice 1 & 2 for the British GP, 2008 word champion Lewis Hamilton discussed with FIA stewards concerning the use of DRS. According to policy, the system should not function on an officially declared wet track, although the British speedy did use it on the Hangar Straight while performing an aerodynamics run on Slick tyres this morning.
“The reason I went to the stewards was to discuss the correct usage of DRS in wet conditions,” Hamilton explained, who ended the day fourth fastest. The rules don’t clearly state whether you can use DRS on slicks in wet conditions, which is what we did this morning. The stewards just wanted to understand so that they could tighten the wording of the regulations for the next race.
