For the last few days, I’ve had a few friends ask me to explain how the Mercedes GP DRS system is more unique than other F1 cars. I found a video which details it.
The key point to note that isn’t brought up in the video that followers should be paying attention to:
- F-Ducts are still legal, even though most people though that they weren’t. Driver-controlled aerodynamic devices were banned. In 2010, the F-duct airflow sections were controlled by the drivers placing hands/knees over ducts in the cockpit. So people made a relationship between driver-movement and F-Ducts, and got the two items confused.
For those who enjoy reading text, ScarbsF1 has a great explanation as well here.
