Any thoughts on the consequences of this? Does anyone benefit or is anyone harmed more than anyone else by this change?
should (in general terms) be same/same I think
it may help less experienced drivers... as they may not have the skills (or balls) to open the DRS as soon as more skilled / experienced drivers did? I don't think it'll make a huge difference on qualifying times, as everyone is in the same boat.

The big development for next year, I think, will be the passive double DRS thing that Lotus and others were working on toward the mid to late season this year.

95 days until we find out...
