Max Verstappen admitted that in season 2017 to overtake in Formula 1 became much more interesting, because now the attack on the opponent has to carefully prepare.
Concerns about the difficulty of overtaking after the transition to the new technical regulations has been confirmed. Compared to the first three races last year, the average number of overtaking in each of the Grand Prix dropped from 73 to 21. However, we must admit that the quality of the maneuvers at the same time was higher, in particular due to the smaller influence of DRS.
“Of course, compared to the previous year, overtaking became more difficult, but not so bad, – quotes AUTOSPORT Verstappen. Now to prepare the attack on new tires, need one or two circles.
The DRS system in this season is not as useful as before. In Shanghai most of the leads were performed without using the movable rear wing is more fun.
At the entrance to turn six in China to overtake it was very nice, especially for late braking.”
