Thought I'd write a short piece about the video that Sauber released yesterday.  A great idea by Sauber that apparently took two years to complete.  The car in question is a BMW Sauber F1.08 so a few years old, however it goes a long way to show the core elements and packaging involved in creating an F1 car.  You can see how tightly packaged the components are with the voids left only for crash/impact protection reasons. As its an 08 car there are no KERS components on the car and refueling was still around in 08 so the fuel tank will be slightly smaller in size than it's modern counterpart.  I'm hoping the team may release so high res images so I can explain aspects of the car more closely.  The 08 season was at the end of a regulation run as you can tell by all of the additional aero elements on the car.  Anyway enough from me, here's the video below:
