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.
