2012 F1 DRS zone will stay with unaffected system rules

Published

on

The DRS (Drag Reduction System) was initiated from the start of 2011 F1 season. It was succeed in Formula 1 and more helpful for overtaking.

2012 Formula 1 DRS regulations will stay with unchanged rules, but the Formula 1 governing body (FIA ) plans to tweak the overtaking zones on the back of the experience of the 2011.

Autosport reports that “FIA, having looked closely at its performance in 2011, is happy for the DRS rules to stay on the same for the season ahead – despite planning to alter some of the overtaking zones. It is understood that zones will be extended at those venues where it was felt overtaking was too hard, while they will be shortened at those where it was deemed that passing was made too easy. “

“Although the final lengths of the DRS zones have not yet been finalised, it is understood that among the changes that will be made in 2012 will be the introduction of a second DRS zone at the Australian Grand Prix.”

Talking to Autosport recently prior to the confirmation of the tweaks, Nico Rosberg said that DRS had been a success – but minor changes to the lengths of some of the zones would be a positive.

“DRS is a great thing,” he said. “In the end, who cares why we are overtaking? They [the FIA] just have to make sure that they optimise it, and that we don’t have too many times where one guy just drives past the guy in front, and gets 50 metres ahead by the end of the straight. That is a bit silly then.

“But as long as it is optimised, which will come with experience, then maybe there can be some new ideas about it and how to do it a little bit better. Then that is a good thing. It is better for it to be too difficult than too easy. If it is too difficult then at least the pressure is there – like in Barcelona [last year] when it was still exciting with Lewis [Hamilton] and Sebastian [Vettel].”
