No DRS ban for Monaco 'wrong' - Barrichello

By on Wednesday, May 11, 2011

May 11 (GMM) Rubens Barrichello has scolded the FIA for refusing to ban the adjustable rear wing overtaking system DRS for the Monaco grand prix later in May.

Some teams and drivers, including Grand Prix Drivers' Association chairman Barrichello, pushed for the ban on safety grounds for the uniquely narrow and twisty street layout.

But Charlie Whiting ruled out a regulation change, informing the teams in Turkey on Sunday.

"It is wrong," Brazilian Barrichello, the most experienced driver in formula one history, is quoted by the Daily Express.

"I would love the people at the top to sit in the car and try to do the tunnel at Monaco with the DRS open," he reportedly said.

"They are waiting for something bad to happen. And when it does, they will just say, 'Oh, next year we won't have it for Monaco'," added Barrichello.
