How Formula 2's new car hopes to be accessible to all drivers
The championship has revealed its new car for the 2024, 2025, and 2026 seasons, aiming to make it as close to an F1 car as possible in terms of safety, look, systems, performance, sustainability, and accessibility. The car successfully completed a shakedown in July with Tatiana Calderon, a former F2 driver, at the wheel. The championship CEO, Bruno Michel, believes that the best solution for power steering is to focus on suspension geometry and braking effort. The FIA is hoping to implement a single steering weight that is acceptable for all drivers across the pyramid. The car has been designed to be comfortable for drivers of all sizes, with adjustments made to the cockpit and steering wheel for better ergonomics.
