VIDEO: F1 In Slow Motion

By  | 

Watch this stunning video provided by Formula1.com from the pre-season test at Barcelona. Highlights include shots of the thumb-shaped nose adopted by many teams.

What should also catch your eye is the shot of the Formula One car driving, away from the viewer on a rumble strip. You can suspension movement as well as sparks flying as the chassis or gearbox bottoms out.

And notice how the massive tire flexes and wobbles as the rubber hits the ripples at the track’s edge.
