Hamilton talked with FIA about the use of DRS

July.08 – After rain-interrupted Friday practice 1 & 2 for the British Grand Prix, McLaren’s 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,” explained the McLaren driver, 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.

“I also suggested a couple of tweaks to make the regulations clearer and safer, so it was quite a useful visit.” Also in the stewards’ office was Red Bull’s Mark Webber. It was soon decided that no action would be taken over the moments.
