British magazine Autosport has learned that the infamous double DRS system will be banned for tnext year in Formula 1.
Mercedes AMG caused a surprise at the beginning of the 2012 season when it ran its W03 fitted with a system that stalled the front wings when the normal DRS, the Drag Reduction Systeme was activated by the driver.
This is designed to increase the top speed of the car on the main straights.

Lotus also designed its own double DRS system that was tested at Hockenheim during the Grand Prix of Germany.
The Technical Working Group discussed the matter recently, and sources have revealed that a majority of teams agreed for a change in regulations that will ensure they cannot incorporate double DRS into their cars for 2013.
It is understood the changes to the technical rules will be made official by the FIA's World Motor Sport Council later this season.
