Mumbai, India (PressExposure) October 09, 2009 -- Most of us are used to seeing F1 cars rocketing along at speeds of 300km/h down straights and downshifting as they head into hairpin turns. But, on Wednesday, 7th October 2009, F1 enthusiasts received a special treat as the Red Bull Racing crew assembled their Formula One car ahead of the highly anticipated Red Bull Speed Link at the JW Marriott.
Spectators got a rare insight into the hi-tech world of Formula One as they witnessed first hand the technical crew putting together one of the fastest machines on the planet â a Formula One car. The session captured the attention of everyone there, as they marvelled at the sheer number of parts that it actually takes to make an F1 car.
Under the supervision of Red Bull Racing Support Team Manager, Tony Burrows, the Formula One car took shape as it was built up around its powerful 10-cylinder engine. The entire assembly process took 3 hours.
Commenting on the session, Tony Â¬said, âWeâve assembled the car many times and yet, every time we do it, itâs always a challenge as it has to be completely right. In Formula One there is absolutely no room for error. Red Bull Racing is a brilliant group of individuals who are experts in the assembly of the F1 car and we hope to make the Red Bull Speed Link in Mumbai a great success.â
