DAS being used?

There is some doubt about the drivers of Merc using das at Melbourne and possibly the next few races.While Bottas is enthusiastic (and swarmy for keeping it secret for a year) Ham is not entirely keen so it seems probably with the many other button/lever pushing and pulling to maintain a quick pace.Also though it may have been 'passed' by the federation there could still be reason for protest at the grey area about moving aero,particularly on the straights and the federation can change it's mind.

There's a few there's as to whether DAS has been used or experimented before.

No way! They were sneaky as hell!!

In all seriousness I can't tell if it's an optical illusion or not.

It does indeed look like it moved a little. But I have doubts about it being DAS. Considering how much each team scrutinizes other cars, I'd be very surprised if this was overlooked by the other 9 teams for so long.

Positive . Ham pulled on his steering wheel and it moved .
Well....Probably the "FIA" was already in "2018" in "Corona Self-Quarantine" ?
