19 of 24 Drivers Signed Document For No DRS Monaco


The drivers union had given the letter to the FIA. 19 of the current 24 drivers signed the recommendation to dispense with the adjustable rear wing in Monte Carlo according to leading German automobile magazine Auto Motor Und Sport.

However, it is to be used with a ban only on the tunnel part of the race. Rubens Barrichello gave FIA race director Charlie Whiting the letter in Barcelona.

With such an outcry of drivers lobbying against DRS use in Monaco and the FIA still planning to go ahead with full use until Monday guess it's like what straight shooter Mark Webber said "It shows they don't listen to us."

What I would like to know is who are the five hard core racers that wanted it and can Bernie arrange a bonus set of fresh super soft tyres for them for being such ballsy racers!

Update: The drivers who wouldn't sign petition were Mercedes drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, Mclaren driver Lewis Hamilton and Renault drivers Vitaly Petrov and Nick Heidfield.
