Ex-Designer is afraid of: formula 1 DRS needs for many years to

introduced Since the formula 1 in 2011 the Drag Reduction System (DRS), the ghosts of the overtaking aid. In the past, was asked by the leaders of the "king's class" in a view, one could abolish the DRS again in the future when the System will not eventually be needed.

for many years, Jordan Designer Gary Anderson does not believe, however, that this point will come quickly. To 'The Race' is not he says: "I'm not sure how the new rules [have a 2022] when Overtaking, when both cars for lap time only half a second apart."

The new regulations will allow, among other things, again, harder battles, because the should afterwards lose the car in the future, much less downforce behind another car. However, Anderson explained: "Regardless of the rules: If you have a car that is faster than the other, then you can't miss."

"The Performance [of the formula-1-cars] is very similar, and if you drive behind another car, then you will also lose furthermore, Performance may be less, but there will still be a loss," says Anderson. In the case of formula 1 itself, it is hoped that for 2022, that this loss will be significantly lower than currently.

Loses a current car according to the calculations of the king class 45 per cent. of its output when it drives a car length behind another, should be starting in 2022, only 14 per cent. Anderson does not believe that it will improve the overtaking situation, starting in 2022 - and that you will therefore continue to DRS.

"that's Why you will need this Gimmick to continue. I do not call it so, because I like the DRS. But you will need it for Overtaking even still," he prophesied, adding: "Then you can pull then [after the overtaking process] maybe a half or a whole second per lap of it."

"But it will continue to be very, very difficult for another car to come by. I hope that you will abolish the DRS. But I'm afraid that there will be even less Overtaking - if that's even possible," says Anderson.
