DRS could be banned at Eau Rouge The FIA is weighing up whether or not to ban the use of DRS through Eau Rouge at this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix, on the back of safety concerns voiced by drivers.
In the wake of the restrictions imposed through the Monaco tunnel earlier this year, the famous Eau Rouge sequence at Spa-Francorchamps has been singled out as another area of worry by some drivers.
It is feared that there could be an increased risk of accidents if drivers are tempted to take the 180mph turn with DRS fully open in practice or qualifying - when DRS use is totally free.
AUTOSPORT reports that the Grand Prix Drivers' Association has already voiced its concerns about the matter, with the situation almost certain to be discussed ahead of the Belgian GP weekend.
Although the FIA has acknowledged that the Eau Rouge issue does need looking it - and reacted to similar worries voiced by drivers about the Monaco tunnel by banning its use there - high level sources at motorsport's governing body have said that no final decision has been made about whether a restriction will be imposed this time out.
