FIA to restrict DRS use for 2013 F1 season

Published

Formula 1 governing body, FIA decided to restrict the use of DRS (Drag Reduction System) use throughout the Formula 1 practice and qualifying in 2013 season. They’re allowed to use DRS perhaps two places on the circuit.

FIA technical delegate Charlie Whiting says that Whole DRS activation zone allowed only in the race, causing sport need more safety. Drivers are using rear-wing activation early at the exit of curves, and it will be made more safety concerns.

“We are going to prohibit the use of the DRS during practice and qualifying except in the places where it’s going to be used in the race, it’s something that we told the teams about the other day, that we are doing it for safety reasons. Whiting said.

“There have been a number of incidents and drivers have told me that it’s becoming increasingly prevalent [for the early deployment of DRS to cause problems]. One could argue that the early deployment of the DRS is not much different to early deployment of the throttle, but the DRS is an on/off switch whereas the throttle can be modulated.”

“The whole point of the DRS was to improve overtaking opportunities in the race, we didn’t really want to have it used in qualifying and practice before but we were worried that we may not have effective DRS systems.

Whiting added “Now I believe [based on] all the information we have, we should not see any reduction in the power of the DRS. Teams will still use it because even though they’re allowed to use it in perhaps two places on the circuit, the benefit will still be there. I’m sure that it will work just as it does now.”
