Mercedes’ innovative DAS system allows drivers to adjust the toe angle of the front wheels by pushing and pulling on the steering wheel. However James Allison reveals it wasn’t easy for drivers to get used to it.
“It did almost everything we’d hoped for”, the Briton told Auto, Motor und Sport.
“Actually, we wanted to use it even more, from corner to corner and from new to old tyres.
“It turned out that the drivers could not easily use the system as a control mechanism. It didn’t become second nature, like steering to the left or right.”

“It is a pity that we could not make the most of it and that it will be banned for next year.
“But we understand that it would have been self-destructive to force everyone else into this development,” concluded Allison.
