Webber: DRS wanting during the practices and qualifying

The Australian F1 veteran Mark Webber has says that the F1 drivers are unanimous in wanting DRS to be limited throughout the free practices and Saturday qualifying.

“In the race you can only use the DRS in the designated zones – and then only if you are within a second of the car in front at the ‘detection point’. But in practice and qualifying you can use it whenever you like,” the Aussie wrote in his BBC column.

“That has led to a few incidents this year where people have gone off because they were pushing the boundaries of using the DRS. Renault’s Bruno Senna had a crash in Suzuka, I had one on Friday in Hungary, and one of my team-mate Sebastian Vettel’s practice crashes was caused by that, too.

“So the drivers are almost unanimous that they would prefer the use of DRS outside of a race to be limited – to just the DRS zone and perhaps a couple of key straights, plus a restriction on the point at which you deploy it so you’re not too close to the exit of a corner. DRS has been a successful device for what it was intended for – racing on Sundays.”
