Button expect spectacular action with DRS for Italian GP

Published

on

Sept.03 – 2009 world champion Jenson Button is expecting ‘spectacular’ battle at Italian GP next race weekend. And he happy with double DRS zone at the famous Monza. First DRS will be placed on the start/finish straight, with the second on the run to the Ascari Chicane.

McLaren introduced a modified rear wing, with a stronger DRS affect, for last weekend’s Belgian GP at Spa.

“It’s going to be the usual difficult trade-off between drag and downforce to find the ultimate package for the race, Button said. Last year, Lewis and I opted to follow two different paths – Lewis went for the low-downforce configuration and I went for more grip, at the expense of straightline speed.

“That meant that, although I had the laptime, I didn’t quite have the opportunity to mount an attack for the lead, because I couldn’t get close enough along the straights to have a go into the braking areas.

“But I think things will be a little more mixed-up this year. For the second time this season, we’ll have two distinct DRS zones, with two potential passing opportunities. The first zone’s going to be interesting because it’s always been very tough to challenge for position under braking for Ascari – the track’s pretty narrow and it’s a fast entry – so I’ll be really interested to see how well DRS will work into that corner – we might see some pretty spectacular moves!

“I think the more conventional passing opportunity will come from the second DRS zone, getting as close as possible into Parabolica, holding on through the corner – which won’t be straightforward – and then deploying DRS down the start/finish straight before, hopefully, passing into Turn One. The DRS is going to be a pretty major asset for a following car, and it might shape the race in some really interesting ways.”
