The banking was designed with the intention that drivers may open DRS on entry and thus have a greater probability of pulling off a passing transfer on the next straight.
Nonetheless, after learning simulations of grip and downforce ranges, the FIA most popular to take a conservative method for the primary F1 occasion at Zandvoort for 36 years, with the intention of gathering some actual world information.
The relative lack of passing in Sunday’s race, as was extensively predicted, has ignited a debate about the way it could possibly be improved.
The 2022 F1 guidelines package deal has been designed to permit vehicles to observe extra carefully, and Brawn needs DRS for use on the banking, which is able to additional enhance the prospects of passing on the Dutch monitor.
“Hopefully, as soon as we have now a correct have a look at all the info, we will return to our unique concept of getting DRS from the start of the banking, which is able to assist somewhat bit,” Brawn informed Autosport after the race.
“It was conservative. We as F1 did not suppose there was an issue, however we wished to be conservative.
“I believe with the info we have got we really feel much more snug, and in order that that is going to be an possibility.
“However there was overtaking, you could possibly do it. It was powerful, nevertheless it may occur, which was nice.”
FIA race director Michael Masi confirmed that the FIA wished to take a cautious method for the inaugural race, however is open to a change for subsequent 12 months.

“As we all the time do with DRS we do some simulations and work with what’s inside the tolerances that we have now,” mentioned the Australian.
“Right here the banking was utterly unknown, [so it was] let’s undergo an occasion, collect a whole lot of knowledge from follow, qualifying, race, after which be in a greater place like we do with DRS zones in any respect occasions, after which assessment it and see if we have to make adjustments and the way we will make adjustments for the next 12 months.
“Like with every little thing you’ll be able to simulate issues as many instances as you want, [but you need] a sensible actual life understanding of what passed off. And now we have now that.”
Masi mentioned he had no issues in regards to the 2021 information translating to subsequent 12 months’s F1 aerodynamic rules.
“I believe it’s going to nonetheless give us a reasonably good indication.
“So sure, it’s a utterly completely different automotive, utterly completely different aero package deal. However I believe primarily based on what we have got it nonetheless give us a reasonably good indication of the home windows, and what we will function in.”
Mercedes group principal Toto Wolff agreed that an prolonged DRS zone can be a Positive transfer for the occasion.
“I believe the race is sort of a ten out of them general,” Wolff informed Autosport.
“If we have been in a position to open DRS in the beginning of the banking, it not solely makes it spectacular, nevertheless it offers one other overtaking alternative.
“I completely perceive about this 12 months, you do not know, and it is the primary time you are working such a high-speed banking.
“I believe when it comes to the vehicles it utterly adjustments subsequent 12 months, however we all know what we need to obtain, and that’s plenty of overtaking zones, and I am actually wanting ahead to open up DRS earlier than the nook.”
