A complete look at what it takes to field a F1 Race car

Hi Guys and Gals.
I just finished watching this fascinating video on the complete working of a F1 Race program. It tells how a F1 car is prepared for the next race from the time it arrives back at the race factory until it's shipped to the next race. Very, very informative!!! You've got to see this factory!!! Unbelievable.

Get a beverage and sit back.


Enjoy
BB

It's the most comprehensive thing I've seen. It's part of the National Geographic series and they have a bunch!. If you can watch the one on the Bugatti Veyron. Wonderful. It's very impressive that it can reach 253 mph but what I find more impressive is that it can reach 253 mph and stop in 10 seconds!

As Arti use to say "Very interesting!"
