If there's 2 DRS-zones in Monza, that will be a party!

I wonder how much of an impact DRS can have at a high-speed circuit where everybody uses as little rear wing as possible already.

According to Adam Cooper, RBR uses a laser to stop the car in the right place :blink:

Why a laser?

thats because once the laser detects the tyre (or car), then it automatically gets the car to stop. It works on same principal as the hand sanitizer preasent in restrooms.

If you watch the Malaysian race edit, you can see the lasers during one of the Red Bull stops. Its obviously working.

But I don't think it is allowed for the teams to directly control the car in any way. Remember all the fuss about the drivers having to operate the f duct manually last year.

I would assume sdutt was joking.
Read this: http://allautoracing.blogspot.com/2011/05/red-bull-adjusts-his-pit-stop-with-help.html
Seems to be a reasonable explanation to me.

''Three strikes' to make driver reprimands costly'

http://www.autoweek.com/article/20110524/F1/110529905

I think this is a good thing, because otherwise nothing is done with reprimands.
