Red Bull Racing’s American Vacation

Red Bull RB6 at Hyatt Infiniti

Red Bull’s RB6 was a dominate force in the 2010 Formula 1 season, wrapping up both the Constructors title for Red Bull as well as the driver’s title for Sebatian Vettel. Vettel’s first chassis, nicknamed “Luscious Liz”, is making its rounds at Infiniti dealers around Canada, and has arrived in Calgary this week.

Checking the car up close, it looks to be an early season car, closely resembling Bahrain spec with the shark fin engine cover. Looking in the cockpit, there were no signs of the hand operated F-Duct from later on in the season. Tires were the current Pirellis (most likely demo tires), and not the proper Bridgestone from the 2010 season. The livery has been updated to 2012 spec to please current sponsors.

The car is on display in at Hyatt Infiniti’s showroom until August 10th. If you’re an Infiniti customer, you should have received your invite for the Red Bull Formula 1 VIP Gust Night on Friday. Make sure you stop by and check it out before it’s gone!

Sauber F1 full sized cutaway

Members of the Sauber F1 team spent 2 years cutting one of their F1 contenders in half right down the middle, along with all the components including the engine and gearbox. It gives a great view of the intricate details of a modern Formula 1 car. It’s a very impressive look at the detailed packaging, and technology that’s packed in such a small vehicle.

As chief designer Matt Morris puts it, “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?”

Red Bull F1 Car + Beach = FUN!
