Video shows assembly, disassembly of the Sauber Formula 1 car

A PowerBlock project typically takes several months to complete, but we break down the episodes to show you the how-to in segments. Each project is unique and shows you something different in each episode.

When you race all over the world, you don’t always ship your vehicle in its entirety. There’s an intensive process involved when breaking it down and putting it back together, especially if it’s a Formula 1 car. Teams work non-stop to get the job done in few days, and in the video below, the assembly and disassembly of the Sauber F1 racecar is shown in a little under a minute and a half.

In the video comments, Sauber Motorsport said that the ‘normal’ process usually takes 2-3 days, which is the time span in the video. But in emergency cases, such as Sergio’s crash in Monaco last year, the guys may assemble a car based on the spare chassis in 12 hours.
