Video: How to build an F1 car

Updated: 


While we have been off twiddling our thumbs over the winter and lapping up any tiny scrap of information about the 2011 Formula 1 season, the teams were all busy creating this year's cars in top secret laboratories.

But last year's champion, Red Bull, has allowed us a sneak peek at just what goes on in building an F1 car. Unlike some of these videos, which are normally either thoroughly tedious or a marketing exercise for a major sponsor, this one is actually quite entertaining. The 1950's voiceover and the shaky black and white footage help somewhat.
