F1 eyes reduced DRS influence for 2023

Formula 1 is considering shortening various DRS overtaking zones for the 2023 season. “At some places we may have to reduce the DRS zones,” FIA technical director Nikolas Tombazis told motorsport-total.com. Departing F1 managing director Ross Brawn agrees: “We know that the fans don’t like it when a driver just opens DRS, drives past and then opens a gap. “I think in an ideal world, DRS would only be used to get close enough to someone in order to launch a decent attack,” he added. “I think we shouldn’t be afraid of reducing DRS in places like Monza because it seems a bit like getting behind someone, pushing a button and going past.”.
