I agree cjf1.
But DRS is supposed to negate the aero disadvantage and give an attacking driver the opportunity to manufacture a pass. Not guarantee it. My personal belief is that if the attacking driver gets close enough, then uses DRS, he should (if he does everything right) arrive at the next braking point side by side with the defending car. Then, in the braking zone, may the best man win. In Valencia they got it right, and it transformed the race from the usual borefest to an exciting race.
There's also the safety aspect to consider, where during the race it's used only in a straight line, and relatively safe. But if you start altering the wings in a corner, it has the potential of being unsafe.
Since we are talking about increasing downforce through the corners, the car would be more stable. But I'm not sure how a car with higher downforce would behave in dirty air through corners. I'm thinking it will decrease the instability, I could be wrong.
