Sauber offers unique insight into intricacies of a modern F1 car with new video

The Sauber team has released a film showing a unique insight of what a Formula 1 car is, by having sliced the single-seater down the middle.

For the past two years, Sauber's mechanics have spent their downtime cutting the car in half, and the model was publicly released on Wednesday.

In the film, chief designer Matt Morris points out where each individual component of the car is located within the chassis.

Mexican Sergio Perez also makes an appearance to demonstrate the driver's position inside the car.

"Formula 1 is all about cutting-edge technology," says Morris at the start of film. "We've all seen countless pictures of racing cars, but wouldn't it be great to really explore inside it - as if peering into the core of an apple?"
