Monaco Ban For DRS?

Formula One bosses are considering banning the use of the DRS (adjustable rear wing) for the whole of the Monaco weekend.

DRS may be used freely in Free Practice and qualifying, and has been permitted on one straight per lap during the first three races of the season.

However, Monaco does not have any long straights, with both the start/finish straight and the tunnel sections featuring curves and slow corners on their completion.

Teams are also concerned that drivers may take risks during qualifying, by opening their wings on complex track sections, in an effort to gain time.
The Monte Carlo circuit famously allows little margin for error, so a slight mistake could cause a qualifying session to be red flagged, or cause injury.
