The secret life of an F1 race car - Sauber F1 Team Timelapse

YouTube Description:

What happens with F1 race cars when they are not racing on one of the race tracks around the world? They are transported back home to the factory, disassembled (or stripped) right down to the survival cell and reassembled with the parts and setup for the next race.

Between the German Grand Prix and the Young Driver Test in Silverstone, our mechanics had an unusual two weeks' time to complete this task, which is normally performed in some 2-3 days. Perfect to set up some cameras to show you a time lapse video starting from the arrival at the factory and ending when the trucks leave Hinwil again.

Click 'play' to enter the C32's living room, the atrium of our factory, and watch our mechanics as they strip the car and put it back together again. No curtains, no disturbing cuts or editing -- pure and raw behind-the-scenes footage.

Thank you very much to Jonas for providing the music to this video. You may find him and his work on or
