New Delhi:

Joining Fernando Alonso's support supporting the recent rule changes in Formula One, McLaren's Lewis Hamilton has said that the new overtaking system has made the sport more exciting.


Refuting claims that the DRS overtaking system has made the sport less challenging, Hamilton said that it has made it has made it more entertaining for the drivers and fans. "I enjoy racing with KERS system and the DRS. Anything that makes the sport more exciting should be applauded," he said.

DRS, basically, is a system that gives a driver a straight-line boost in speed on a specified section of the track if he is within a second of the car ahead. The driver in front is not allowed to employ the system. KERS on the other hand is a system by which kinetic energy generated during braking is stored by the car batteries to be used later. Hamilton employed the system to good effect in the Chinese Grand Prix where he finished on top.

The Briton remains confident of finishing on a high despite concerns relating to the pace of the car for both him and team-mate Jenson Button.
