F1's current cars getting as hard to follow as in 2020/2021, lament drivers
The Italian Grand Prix showcased exciting overtakes and intense wheel-to-wheel action, highlighting the potential of the current generation of cars. However, there are concerns regarding the development directions teams are taking, as increased performance seems to result in airflow characteristics that hinder cars from following each other. Leading drivers believe that F1 should rely more on DRS (Drag Reduction System) to enhance overtaking opportunities at certain tracks. Both Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen emphasize the need for a potent DRS, as the current cars are becoming harder to race and pass with due to their increased efficiency and downforce. Red Bull’s Sergio Perez agrees that increasing the effectiveness of DRS is necessary for better racing.
