DRS against KERS


(system) #1

OK, we’re now beginning to get twitchy and I think suffering from withdrawal symptoms as a result of the cancellation (or is it postponement) of the Bahrain Grands Prix.

I had a similar conversation with my lad the other day and we think similar to you after 3 races the techies will have got the stratagies sorted with all the new stuff and it will be down to the top boys again. Supporting F1 is like these people that support a football team all their life, you take the ups with the downs and still love it. Last year was ok after a few not so good ones, will we see an improvement this yes for a few races then its anyones guess. And at least we dont have to suffer the Bahrain procession, if one race should be off the calander its that one.
