FIA Limits Use Of F1's DRS On Fridays, Saturdays During '13 Season
Motorsport governing body FIA revealed that it "will limit the use of F1's drag reduction system in free practices and qualifying in '13," according to Robert Seiwert of MOTORSPORT MAGAZIN. F1 teams "will only be allowed to use the DRS in the same spots as they are allowed to in the race." So far, drivers "have been allowed to use the DRS whenever they want on Friday and Saturday to get as much speed as possible out of their cars." The reason for FIA's decision to limit the DRS use in '13 is "safety concerns." FIA F1 Race Dir Charlie Whiting said, "We prohibit the use of DRS during the practices and qualifying except in those areas where it is also allowed in the race" (MOTORSPORT MAGAZIN, 11/16).
