Infiniti Red Bull Racing is mid-way through a seven-part series that takes an unusually close look at what goes into bringing a modern F1 car to life on the track.
The first part gave us insights into the design and R&D phase of the process. Then we saw how carbon fiber is used--and made--to keep the F1 cars as light and as strong as possible. Today, we get a look into the manufacturing processes that underlie all of the parts of an F1 car.
Unlike many other motorsports, there are essentially no off-the-shelf parts. Nothing is production-based. So the vast majority of the car has to be built from scratch, right down to the wheel nuts.
How does Red Bull do it? What are the key factors in producing F1 parts? What are the time frames like? All of these questions and more are answered in the video above.
