INTRODUCING THE NEW DALLARA FORMULA 2 CAR



Stefano Domenicali, the CEO of the Formula One Group, and Bruno Michel, the CEO of Formula 2 and Formula 3, unveiled the new Dallara single-seater destined for the upcoming Formula 2 season in a presentation held at the iconic Monza circuit. This presentation marked a significant turning point as the current chassis, introduced back in 2018, is set to retire at the end of the year, making way for a new car that promises not only improved safety standards but also a greater focus on accommodating the varying height and physique requirements of drivers. Furthermore, this single-seater brings a breath of modern Formula 1-style aerodynamics into play.


One aspect that has captured the attention and curiosity of motorsport enthusiasts and industry professionals is the remarkable aerodynamic solution introduced in this new Formula 2 car. While the front wing closely resembles that of Formula 1 cars, the rear wing features a distinctive element: a flap positioned above the traditional mainplane. This design alteration, reminiscent of innovations seen in Formula 1 since the 2022 season, aims to intensify on-track battles while reducing the disruptive effects of aerodynamic turbulence.


In the realm of safety, numerous improvements have been made to the car's chassis. The introduction of a new front anti-intrusion panel significantly enhances resistance to frontal impacts, with lateral reinforcement being equally crucial. The nosecone has been meticulously designed to maximize impact absorption, ensuring that driver safety remains a top priority. Meanwhile, the steering wheel has been updated with the introduction of the latest XAP model, which has already been successfully used in Formula 3 during the 2022 season. Additionally, the cockpit has been transformed into a more "inclusive" structure; its dimensions now allow drivers ranging in height from 150 to 198 centimeters to enjoy maximum comfort.
