How To Make an F1 Car

Vettel 2013

“The development race never stops.”

Red Bull has released the first in a four-part video series that gives an insider’s view into how the reigning World Champions go about making a Formula 1 car. The first episode focuses on the design and R&D stage — which takes approximately five months – and features interviews from team principal Christian Horner and technical partnership manager Alan Peasland, as well as giving a glimpse inside key areas of the team’s factory in Milton Keynes, UK.

The team says 1,000 parts are put through the wind tunnel each week while over 400 lines of telemetry are measured during a wind tunnel test. The car which is used in wind tunnel is a 60% scale version of the real F1 car.
