hey guys, so i've been driving the McLaren P1 around Donnington (GP layout) (free practice) and i noticed the rear wing is always up and when i press the DRS button it goes down while i got the button pressed then raises again!
surely it should be the other way round, its down till i hit DRS then it raises? or is that the norm for the mcLaren?

forgive me, im no engineer or car expert

no, DRS = drag reduction system, so it flattens to reduce drag.

note that with race cars that have the feature, you just have to press the drs button, and press again or break to disengage it. its only the P1 that requires you to hold the button down for it to stay engaged.

Hi BorgX666, I believe the rear wing is always up as the car is configured for "track" mode.

DRS should go down while you have the button pressed as it is moving the wing down out of the airflow.

......at least that is my understanding of it :)


edit - Ninja'd :)
