Points for McLaren? Let's hope Barcelona doesn't deliver a borefest!

Jinxed it guys, sorry!

I had a thought though. There needs to be a sort of dynamic DRS system developed. A system where as a car approaches another in the DRS zone, the DRS is opened, but the closer the car is to the one in front, the narrower the gap is wing is. I'm no engineer, but isn't it possible so that the less disturbed the air is, the less the wing opens? So that it gives the driver behind the chance to catch the car in front, but by the time he gets alongside, the wing is closed and the speed differential is zero.

Is this even possible?

Crude diagram as an example lol

I think it would be possible but not desirable... with two cars alongside, heading into a corner,
it becomes a game of chicken as to who brakes last... I can see many crashes..

More importantly there needs to be restrictions to the front wing allowing cars to at
least get with in striking distance of a similarly quick car without their aero being
affected ... which would open up many more overtaking possibilities...

Side by side into corners is EXACTLY what we want, that's entertainment! As for the front wings, making them simpler would be the obvious solution lol.

Yes, but I meant not with the 'unfair' advantage of ANY kind of DRS... genuine overtaking
is what I would prefer and obvious or not, simpler wings would allow that..

I don't think the rules would allow it.  Moveable aero surfaces I believe are banned, except DRS wings of course.
