How could this be harnessed?

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Could it be used to tune an exhaust to benefit a turbocharger?

That metamaterial is, AFAIK, some sort of semisolid repetitive mesh (I mean solid and air or solid and liquid). So you’d be blocking things almost fully.
I would like to see a paleontologist.

Sure, why not?

Sound is an aural artefact of energy transmission, & one of the 'unforseen consequences' of the very efficient current F1 turbo-compound ICE units has been a tangible loss of that 'visceral thrill' sound factor
due to high-energy exhaust ejecta, so perhaps some 'tweaking', ah, I mean 'super-computation' of the
functions of the device you posted could be utilized - instead of the crude 'vuvuzela' approach - used now?
