DRS is a team action Losers Teams can take alongside Pitlane Punts, Fast Forecast, Ejector Seats and the Lucky Spanner.DRS stands for Double Race Scores: if a race has DRS applied, race points you earn are doubled. Nine races have DRS automatically applied.
The F1 Losers League is planning to replace the DRS system. This means DRS is not available for races from October onwards. Stand by for news about a new team action replacing DRS soon.

ALL ABOUT DRS (DOUBLE RACE SCORES)
Here's how DRS works.
In the Losers League, DRS means Double Race Scores. If a race has DRS applied, every point you earn is doubled.
Just so no-one misses out, nine races automatically have DRS applied – but you can change this if you're feeling tactical. Read on.
STICK TO THE DEFAULTS?
Every Losers Team starts the season with DRS applied to every third race, plus a couple of bonus DRS races at the end of the season. There are nine in all. See these default DRS races listed on the Calendar.
You can do nothing if you want: you'll still get your double scores at these pre-allocated races. Just stand back and watch the points tumble over each other like drunken pitstop mechanics.
MOVE AROUND YOUR DRS?
You don't have to stick to the defaults. You can move any of your DRS allocations to any other race in the season, and you can do this as often as you want.
An example: The next race is normal points. Suddenly, in the lead-up to the race weekend, your Losers Team driver Lewis Hamilton murders a swan. Lawks! He's bound to be awarded a 10-point Beige Flag when the next race points are announced. You sense a decent Losers Points haul, so move a DRS into that race.
Calendar caveat: Time travel does not exist, so you cannot allocate a DRS to a race that has already happened.
Yes, you can stack up your DRS like Lego, pancakes, or Lego pancakes. You can apply up to three DRS to a single race, significantly increasing your score.
- Using one DRS in a race doubles that race's points.
- Using two DRS in a race triples that race's points.
- Using three DRS in a race quadruples that race's points.
THE PRACTICAL BIT
You cannot adjust a race's DRS once qualifying starts for that race. DRS will be applied to Pitlane Punt winnings (but not to stake payments).
