Red Bull’s Drag Reduction System (DRS) advantage in Formula 1 is due to the ratio of drag it balances between its rear wing and beam wing. The team’s RB19 car is so stable at the rear that it can run a much smaller beam wing than its rivals, meaning its rear wing contributes a larger share of overall drag in a straight line. When DRS is activated, this allows Red Bull to shed more air resistance. Rival teams are now trying to develop their cars in the same direction but acknowledge that reducing the size of their beam wings is complicated due to how much downforce they provide for stabilising the rear end of their cars.
