The Sauber Formula 1 found an innovative way to explain Formula 1 technology as it split a 2008 BMW Sauber F1.08 chassis in half lengthways to show the positioning of components within the car.
For the last two years the Sauber F1 Team mechanics have been using their downtime to slice an F1 car lengthwise down the middle with the precision of true craftsmen.
Chief Designer Matt Morris quite literally gets underneath the skin of the F1 car, pointing out where and how the individual components are located within the chassis. Everything is packed in pretty tightly. Sergio Pérez is also on hand to demonstrate the driver's seating position.
As usual, even with a four-year-old car, the Swiss team avoid showing the rear end of the car in too much detail, as the engine and transmission are among its most sensitive parts. This being a 2008 car, is does not have a KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) or DRS (Drag Reduction System).
