F1 technical expert Mark Hughes commented on DAS, saying: "If the mechanism works as assumed, the tyres will be heated more evenly across their width as they run fully upright, but the benefits of the toe-out can still be deployed into the corner. It will be of particular benefit on circuits with long straights.
It has been a mixed bag so far. McLaren, for example, have stated that they will look at other areas of car development and have no plans to introduce DAS this season, while Mattia Binotto said that DAS implementation on the Ferrari wouldn't arrive until mid-season 'at the earliest'.
Given it is likely to be outlawed from the following season, it may be seen as a piece of work that some teams won't want to waste time on.
