Next generation Formula 2 car revealed at Monza

The new F2 car, to be raced in the 2024-2026 seasons, has been designed to be as close to an F1 car as possible in terms of safety and accessibility. It features a 3.4-litre turbocharged Mecachrome engine and complies with the FIA’s 2024 safety specifications. The goal is to accommodate a wider range of driver sizes, including female racers. The car completed a successful shakedown with former F2 driver Tatiana Calderon in July and will undergo further development with drivers like Felipe Drugovich. One car will be delivered to teams by the end of December 2023, with the second car following in mid-January 2024. F2 CEO Bruno Michel expressed pride in the new car, emphasizing its power, challenge, safety, and ability to prepare young drivers for F1. The car’s design also takes into account the FIA’s consideration of steering effort and aims to make the sport more inclusive. The new F2 car will not have power steering but will utilize weight and geometry adjustments instead. The FIA and Formula 2 have worked together to create an impressive package focused on close racing, safety, sustainability, and accessibility for drivers. This step brings Formula 2 closer to the pinnacle of motorsport and ensures the next generation of drivers have the best preparation for the future.
