After the Grand Prix of China the leadership of the Formula 1 will appreciate the ability to change the rules for the use of the DRS system.
It is assumed that with increasing levels of downforce this year to overtake will become more difficult. Thus, according to commands because of the increased drag, the system of movable rear wing will not be as effective as before.
Earlier, the FIA already expressed their willingness to reconsider the location of the zones of activation of the DRS. According to F1Fanatic, the matter was resolved to do after the second race of the season-2017, which will be held in Shanghai.
The FIA intends to thoroughly investigate the influence of the new aerodynamic body kit for the work of DRS, and albert Park, given the specificity of the route, it will be difficult to give an accurate assessment.
“The effect of DRS will be less, so probably the FIA will have to increase the length of zones are activated in order to increase efficiency, – said a leading engineer of Mercedes Aldo Costa. – From the point of view of aerodynamics was a major step forward. Machines became much faster, looks more aggressive and modern. As for the entertainment races, then we must determine this question.”
