Option to automatically override ERS to "Overtake" mode while DRS is on?

Question

Posted (edited)

Please consider adding an option, preferably on the MFD, that would allow for the ERS to be automatically switched to "Overtake" mode when the DRS is engaged, and then automatically switched back to the previous mode when the DRS is disengaged. It could be a big help, especially for pad users that drive with manual gears and have a lot of work to do on the pad, in addition to driving.

Auto ERS is an assist. You chose the controller.

Auto ERS doesnt do what he's suggesting though. And not everyone has the space and/or money to get a steeringwheel and pedal setup.

Wouldn't work in practice. Problem being that the racer might not want to always have it on. Say you're catching up another driver but your ERS is low. You use DRS down the straight then after braking use OVERTAKE to pass him. If it was auto on down the straight it would run out and be wasted before you reached him. 

Also how does the game then know when to turn it off? DRS is special as it had to be turned ON manually but ONLY when a certain track condition is met not just because you pressed the button. Then it ends on a number of conditions. You press button again or brake for example. How would the game know when you wanted to disconnect ERS? What if you wanted it to stay on after DRS was deactivated. What if you didn't? Would lead to more confusing options in the menu screens. 

Be easiest just to assign a button to OVERTAKE if possible. 

So yeh interesting idea but not very practical to implement.
