I do not consider F1 a pinnacle of innovation. Nor do I really think it ever has been. It's a pinnacle of refined application perhaps. As far as developing NEW technologies - I'd say it's the exception rather than the rule in pro motorsports.

Hmm, I remeber Renault guys were reported to help Boeing with Dreamliner.
Still it initially came from aerospace, so it's more of refinement.

nope they are developed long before in the aviation world
