    Hey guys!

    I'm now on my 1st career season with Williams and it's already New Delhi for tonight. But I faced a very annoying problem - when I activate DRS it closes itself after a few seconds or sometimes doesn't open at all. WTF? Is it a bug or a feature like a bad rear wing or something? It happened earlier in the season in some sessions in some tracks but then disappeared pretty quickly. It happened that in races it was surely a feature when engineer told me that it was broken for a few laps (same happens to KERS in races). But I talk about practices and qualies, now in India it's nearly constant in P1 and P2 and engineer says nothing. As you understand, it totally ruins my lap time, especially on a track like Buddh with its long straights.

    What I tried is to change the DRS button on a wheel but it didn't help at all (i thought it could be button that was the problem). So what shall I do and who shall I blame - Williams or Codies? :) Please help!

    DRS closes by itself when you put your foot off the throttle.

    Increase your braking dead zone. Probably your pedals are telling the game you're braking very slightly, so it's closing the DRS.

    No, it doesn't, it closes only by button or brake pedal.

    Thank you so much! It looks like it helped.

    Brake dead zone set to around 2% will help also with slipstream effect - if deadzone is 0%, we haven't got dirty air no matter if someone is in front of us.

    Defo put the brake deadzone to 2% or more. You will then have slipstream and dirty air from the car in front. Your car will wash out and understeer if you are close going through a corner...it's great!! Also, if you damage your front wing you will here a wind noise now as the Aero has been rendered less efficient. :)

    Sarcasm? I have a 0% deadzone,s hould I change it 2%? I haven't heard about any sort of aero properties changing with brake deadzone.
