This Is How Red Bull Makes F1 Parts At Home

In part three of Red Bull Racing's behind the scenes series, we learn about the machinery that's responsible for the in-house production of 70% of the parts that make up their F1 cars.


The RB9 has 6,500 parts and about 100,000 components, 2/3 of which can be produced at the machine shop at the team's base in Milton Keynes. Using over twenty milling machines and sixty different metallics and composites makes Red Bull Racing capable of modifying or rebuilding the car in the tight gap between two race weekends.

Enjoy as the metal turns into tiny pieces of art:
