Sauber in half

Formula 1 teams try and hide so much now today.  Screens, mechanics standing in front of cameras. That’s how technical it has become. So how refreshing is this video from Sauber?

By Andy Hallbery

Fuel tank baffles, seating positions, all explained in this fascinating video from Sauber.

How long did it take to create?: “It was two years to build and cut the car,” says a team member of Sauber. The guys used their spare time to do it.”

Among the openness, the realisation of how uncomfortable the seating position is. It is a great story of an F1 car dissected.
