Red Bull Racing Videos: How to make an F1 car
In a new mini-series Red Bull Racing is lifting the lid on the secrets of building Formula One cars.
Over four episodes, How to Make an F1 Car will take you from concept to build and the first video, focusing on Design and R&D, will be online this Wednesday.
Featuring interviews with Christian Horner and senior team members, the first episode explains some of the work undertaken by the design department, including the 30,000 design changes it works through the during the course of a season. The film also gives a glimpse inside a number of key factory areas, including the wind tunnel.
Part 1: Design and R&D
Part 2: The Composites
In this episode, we take a look at the composite materials that go into Red Bull Racingís cars.
Carbon fibre revolutionized Formula One when it was first introduced in 1981.
Fast-forward 32 years and itís still the material of choice for all Formula One teams for everything from steering wheels to gearboxes.
In this latest episode of How to Make an F1 Car, we take a look behind the scenes at Red Bull Racingís Milton Keynes factory to see how carbon fibre composite pieces are prepared and integrated into the teamís RB9 racer.
Part 3: Manufacturing
In this episode, we take a look at the manufacturing of an Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car.
It takes around 300 designers five months to make a Formula One car, now Infiniti Red Bull Racing have opened their factory doors to show just how itís done.
With exclusive interviews with team members this latest video from the team looks at manufacturing a Formula One car.
Part 4: Assembly
In this fourth and final installment of the video series, the team looks at the assembly process.
In the final episode of Red Bull Racingís How to Make an F1 car, we take a look behind the scenes at the teamís Milton Keynes, UK headquarters to see the various departments responsible for assembling Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webberís race cars.
With well over 6,000 components coming together to make one Red Bull Racing RB9 car, ensuring that each and every one of those parts is up to the teamís exacting standards is no mean feat.
And itís this attention to the minutest of details that has led Red Bull Racing to three Constructorsí titles Ė with a fourth one surely not far away.
