Raikkonen pleased with DRS limiting



2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen made a fantastic return to the 2012 sport with third place in drivers’ championship. The Finn pleased with DRS limiting for next season.

DRS permits drivers to obtain a boost up in speed, when they opening rear-wing, this concept allows thrilling performance and easy overtaking for drivers.

Following the final World Motor Sport Council meeting, Formula 1 governing body FIA decided to restrict free use of DRS in practice and qualifying, governing body introduce minor changes in the 2013 regulations.

“I think the change will match the best cars, such as the two Red Bull were able to shoot in some corners with the DRS open-go-faster, while others could not,” he says.

“Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel and especially, took a lot out of this system especially on Saturday when qualifying, when its use was free all the way around, because the system will work better than none, as Kimi said.

However, next year, the DRS will be used Friday and Saturday like Sunday, that is, only in small designated areas and not, as up till now, with free use. “It is a reasonable change. F1 ever going more in the direction in which everyone tried to seize all the time use DRS increasingly sometime soon and would be a big accident. Everyone wanted this change,” recognizes the Finnish daily Turun Sanomat.

“That’s rubbish. If it were true, there would be no need for engineers. Course gives our opinion pilots and engineers listen, but it is unfair to be asked to build cars,” he added.
