Christian Horner Warns of Creating ‘Technical Frankenstein’ in Upcoming F1 Regulations

As Formula 1 prepares for significant changes in the 2026 season, including a shift towards more electrification and the adoption of a new carbon-free fuel, concerns are being voiced regarding the upcoming chassis technical regulations. While the 2026 engine regulations have been finalized, the details about the chassis changes have yet to be revealed.

The planned adjustments aim to make the cars lighter and shorter, with a strong emphasis on reducing drag. However, some within the sport have expressed worries about the potential impact of these regulations. Christian Horner, the team principal of Red Bull Racing, has previously raised concerns about the risk of creating “technical Frankenstein” cars if the rules are not carefully planned.
