McLaren technical director Paddy Lowe happy with the DRS effects to very trouble-free way of improving overtaking. And he added that DRS was the simple and more effective solution of the aerodynamics idea for the overtaking.

“What’s great about DRS is at least we can move on from this debate of trying to change the aerodynamic characteristics of cars to try to improve overtaking,” he told BBC. “We’ve found something much more authoritative, much cheaper, easier and more effective, and adjustable from race to race.”

Former triple times F1 World Champion Niki Lauda says that DRS overtaking is essentially wrong direction for the Formula 1. DRS was designed by a working group including McLaren’s technical director Paddy Lowe, who insists DRS was a good idea amid the long debate about tweaking the cars to boost overtaking.

“What’s great (is) at least we can move on from this debate of trying to change the aerodynamic characteristics of cars to try to improve overtaking,” he said.
