McLaren working on 'double DRS'

2012-08-03 11:14

'SUPER DRS' EARLY ADOPTER: McLaren's sporting director Sam Michael has admitted the British F1 team is also exploring a "double DRS" system for its cars.

McLaren looks set to be the next team with a 'double DRS'-like system aboard its 2012 car.

After Mercedes, then Lotus, pioneered the straight-line speed-boosting concept for the 2012 season, it emerged that the IAF intends to ban it for 2013 and beyond.


However, according to McLaren sporting director Sam Michael, work is well under way on a McLaren version.

The Australian was quoted by Italian website f1passion.it as saying: "It's not like the Lotus one, but we are studying such a system."

Michael said he was not sure when the "double DRS" or "super DRS" would make its debut on the MP4-27.

"We must be careful that it does not take time away from our other updates," he warned.
