But for me the key point of interest was that if you press the
button too early you thereby lose DRS. Which IIRC was suggested as a
cause of Hamilton's problems during Q3 at Bahrain.
Granted I don't pay a lot of attention to the details of the rules,
but I'm not sure I have ever heard about the "you loose the DRS"
deal. And I know I've not heard that there is a tone for the driver
to let them know.
All makes sense though. I could see drivers mashing the button and
letting it kick in immediately when they cross the line.
Speaking of buttons... Every now and then someone mentions the
overtake button. What is that this year? KERS/ERS boost? Is there
a limit on use?
Yes, combined with maximum fuel flow / maximum power engine map. The limit
is how much energy is in the energy storage system - and then your engineer
telling you you're marginal on fuel.
