Mercedes obviously, so they stop getting burnt by all the Bottas memes and Horner's passive aggressive voodoo.

Ah, the good old Scalwo. We used to play with it as kids, before the accident.

Hm, tungsten is not a light element. I definitely see the aerospace applications but I’m not sure where you’d be using this on a race car when racing engineers freak out over literal fractions of a kilogram.
But I’m not an engineer by trade!

Interesting but for F1 it's not on the list of allowable materials. Tungsten in alloys is also prohibited. In view of the future cost restrictions I wonder if any new exotic and expensive material will appear.

Is pykrete on the list of allowable materials? I am asking for a friend...

Just curious... Where and how and in what ways would such material be beneficial in an F1 car?
Not trolling, I'm geniunely interested
There's a lot of questions before we know what it can really be used for, but if the mechanical properties are appropriate think fuel injector nozzles that have a constant flow performance because they never change size/mating tolerance with temperature delta.
One comment I read indicated it's a ceramic, not a metal alloy. Still an interesting material...
