Double DRS is banned for 2013 Formula 1 season!

Majority of the F1 teams have agreed to change the rules regarding the “double DRS” on F1 cars. It is believed that the ban will be imposed starting from next year. The official announcement will be made by FIA’s World Motor Sport Council later this year.

The ban is part of the plan to reduce the costs in Formula 1 for the sport to remain viable in a long run. Mercedes did not support the ban and claimed that it is cost-effective.

After the failed protest in Chinese Grand Prix, Lotus has begun to develop and test its own version of “double DRS” since German and Hungarian Grand Prix and is expected to race it during Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps. Lotus has explained that the development of “double DRS” will carry on for this year since it will benefit for the second half of this season.

For more technical details of the “double DRS”, you can view it here on our earlier blog post.
