make dropdown winder than column in DataGridView

I need to make dropdown list wider than column width.
I tried code below but dropdown width is not increased when I open dropdown.
How to increase it ?
using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;

class Form1 : Form {

static void Main() {
try {
Application.Run(new Form1());
catch (Exception e) {

private DataGridView dataGridView1 = new DataGridView();

public Form1() {
Load += new EventHandler(Form1_Load);

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
col = new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn();
col.DropDownWidth *= 3;
