F2's radical rear wing idea could offer clue to F1's future DRS route

The F2 car’s radical design, resembling the feathers of a peacock, was designed to enhance racing performance rather than for aesthetics. The focus was on improving the DRS efficiency, which is crucial for overtaking. F1 is also aiming to increase DRS efficiency in its new regulations for 2026, as reducing drag on straights may make passing harder. The larger and heavier flap on the F2 car’s rear wing helps create a bigger top DRS delta, allowing cars to overtake on the straights. Lessons learned from the F2 car’s design and performance will likely influence the final 2026 F1 chassis regulations. F2 has a history of leading innovation, such as with 18-inch tires and sustainable fuels, which can later be implemented in F1.
