Video: A 'classic' look at how the Red Bull RB7 is built


While other teams coming off of a championship season can just sit on their laurels and soak on their success, thinking that the following year would yield the same results, there are those that aren’t satisfied with tasting the sweet taste of victory just once. These are the teams that are never satisfied and as soon as the hangover fades, they’re back to work for the next championship run, determined to prove that their success isn’t a one-year fluke.

While the jury is still out on what side Red Bull Racing is, it should be comforting for their fans to know that the team’s preparation for the 2011 Formula One season has been the same as it has always been: meticulous, determined, and unsatisfied.

In this video, Red Bull shows the painstaking lengths the entire team – from designer Adrian Newey all the way down to the engineers – goes through in preparing their 2011 rocket ship, the RB7.

Don’t think too much about how they presented the video, going the old school, black-and-white, grainy film with a high-pitched narrator route.

Instead, focus on how the RB7 evolves from Newey’s design sketches, all the way to Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s "go! go! go!" test runs.

In a sport as privy and guarded as Formula One, it’s a refreshing take on what goes on behind the scenes of a full-fledged F1 team, without the scandals and controversies.

Well, this one is definitely an inter3estin twatch. I have always been a fan of the Red Bull team, and I have also bee interested in the development of the cars they use.

Red Bull had a great season last year, so they are definitely one of the teams to watch this year. However, other teams, like Ferrari, are slowly climbing up again.

The Red Bulls are going to be watching Alonso in there mirrors this year. Although I’m sure he will still find a way to cheat.

How does Redbull afford all its motorsports activities? They must sell a lot of cans of RB. Even so, how does it convince their investors to let them spend that kind of dough? They must have a huge marketing budget.
