The car that took Red Bull Racing to two world titles, the RB6, was the work of a team led by legendary F1 designer Adrian Newey. The Red Bull Racing F1 Car Manual, produced with the full cooperation of Red Bull Racing, takes a unique look under the skin of the RB6, explaining in unprecedented detail how a modern F1 car works. Aided by numerous photographs and exclusive technical illustrations, the fascinating text describes:
- The Anatomy of the Red Bull Racing RB6 - chassis, aerodynamics, suspension and steering, brakes, engine, transmission, tyres, electronics, hydraulic system, safety equipment, driver controls
- The Designer’s View - the design process, optimising the ‘package’, wind-tunnel and CFD simulation, testing and development
- The Race Engineer’s View - working on the car, working with the driver, setting up the car, the race weekend
- The Race Driver’s View - Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber provide insight into how they drive an F1 car and how they work with the team to develop and optimise it throughout the season
- Produced with the full cooperation of Red Bull Racing, with extensive input from key technical staff and drivers
