In this great video from Formula Data Analysis, we take a look at every the 2023 Formula 1 team DRS effectiveness and how it compares to other teams
Every #F1 Team DRS effectiveness compared 🏎️🔥
🔵RB: Most effective (18.7% drag reduction)
🟢Aston: Least effective (only 13.2%)

As a results of its inherently low drag, the Red Bull RB19 car could afford to run more loaded rear wings on average (especially the DRS plane), gaining extra downforce. The DRS partially negated the additional drag, producing the most effective DRS action.
Haas in general had excellent top speeds all season long despite often running quite loaded rear wings which speaks about (and leads to) the effectiveness of their DRS
The fact that Ferrari ran less loaded wings than most teams is the main reason why they didn’t have a very effective DRS. It can also be read the other way around, though: Ferrari often had very competitive top speeds DESPITE a not-so-effective DRS, so their top speed with the DRS closed was even more competitive compared to other teams.
