Sauber F1 Team has been beavering away on a series of videos for its You Tube channel which allow fans to see inside an F1 car – literally!

They have cut an F1 car in half and with various technical staff and drivers to explain, they show some key aspects of the car. Nico Hulkenberg shows in cross section how his seat fits, for example, while even fine details like timing transponders are illustrated. Users can click on areas of the car they wish to learn about and a fresh You Tube window plays a video on it.

All the F1 teams have got active on You Tube in the past year as the American tech giant pushes into a new and exciting territory. Some teams are committed to producing a significant amount of content.

You Tube also has a motorsport channel it supports POLE POSITION P1, which produces regular F1 and motorsport content.

However despite its progress with the F1 teams, You Tube has not managed to make any headway with Bernie Ecclestone, the commercial rights holder of the sport, who controls all the action footage.

Check out the Sauber offering below.

    Sure ain’t much room between the butt and the road!

      Gives a whole new meaning to skidmarks ;)

    2. Rayz says:

      No wonder Raikkonen’s back is destroyed.

  2. Stephen Taylor says:

    These are not bad but not great. On another note just look this shock news coming from STR.

      oops sorry look at.

  3. That’s the damnest thing I ever saw. Amazing stuff.

    2014 Google-Sauber-Ferrari ?

    or

    2014 Telmex Guitierrez Instead Of Perez Sauber-Ferrari?

    or

    2014 Russian-Aviation-Federation-Sauber-Ferrari?

    So much cash you could chop a car in two!

    Love seeing stuff like this from the teams. As always, annoying to see little cooperation from the commercial rights holder. He should be thinking more along the lines of NFL Films than the head of a Defence Department making all of the great coverage Top Secret.

  6. RogerD says:

    I look forward to the blowup / cutaway pictures of Uncle Bernie’s wallet.

    1. Random 79 says:

      I’m thinking the cross section will be very green ;)

    2. CYeo says:

      You mean the thick wad of paper & plastic between two slices of dead cow skin?

      It actually gives him a 4″ boost when he sits.

      1. Random 79 says:

        4″ inch boost.

        My mind just went somewhere I did not want it to go…

  7. Gord says:

    Is that the BMW F1.08 ? because Sauber used that in their older video of an F1 cutout.

  8. Robert Lujan says:

    I love wantching thier videos on Youtube. I think they could be a bit longer though…. ;-(

  9. Spoo says:

    Simply love what these relatively smaller teams are doing. Don’t care whether its for publicity or money but this video from Sauber, Thermal imaging cam first put on FI and the awesome PR department from Lotus. These teams bring F1 closer to me than RBR or Ferrari…

  10. JB says:

    I love what Sauber, Red Bull and Mercedes are putting on the Internet. wonderful insights about their team, glimpse of the technical as well as work life in F1.

    This is much better than Mclaren’s silly cartoons. Nevertheless, Mclaren is still way better than Ferrari which has nothing. I feel that everything about Ferrari is secretive.

    I’m a fan for Red Bull and Sauber and lotus. They are willing to bring new ideas and take the fight to the established imperial teams. The old imperial teams Ferrari, Mclaren and Williams are too rigid to react to changes. That’s why they have fallen behind.
