Mad Mike is one of those drifters, who I absolutely love his style.
Take one quad-rotor FD3S, a super winding road, with some slow-motion shots and you have all of the pieces for a super fun video. No words. Just beautiful noise.
I’d love to do something like this. Thanks to Speedhunters for the original find.
It’s not often that a Formula 1 chief designer gets to drive the same cars that he’s designed. Aerodynamic genius for Red Bull Racing’s Formula 1 team, Adrian Newey got a change to experience two of them. The 1990 Leyton House March, and the 2010 Red Bull RB6.
It’s awesome to see how these cars have evolved over the years. If you want to see an infographic of Formula 1 car design, check this out.
Well, it’s nice to see that even the best drivers get caught up in the heat of emotion from time to time. Always nice to be given the finger, when it’s someone elses fault. (In my opinion)
The car with the target on it’s back for 2012. Interesting nose vent there…
Again, I won’t post much about the technical details on the car right now, because tons of Formula 1 blogs have that covered. Is there anything interesting in the video that catches your attention?
I honestly didn’t know that Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton were battling back in Formula 3! Finding this video puts the battles between Hamilton and Vettel in the beginning of the Formula 1 2011 season in more perspective.
I wonder how much history do the two have together through the years?…
Listening to David Coulthard talk through a turn-by-turn what a driver needs to do on the opening lap of the Monaco Grand Prix, just reminds you how intense having to drive a Formula One car actually is!
“Leader, racer and winner.” – Christian Horner is an inspiring figure.
A former race driver, Christian then moved to become the super successful team owner of Arden F3 team, and now team principal for Red Bull Racing. Christian is a character who has found his calling.
An amazing people manager, an enthusiast of motorsport, politician and competitive as all hell.
His young age belies his experience and personal tenacity. Horner is a leader whose skills as personally, as a professional, that I aim to emulate. Christian stays engaged with all areas of the business.
He works closely with his drivers, engineers, mechanics and support team to make sure to get the maximum of everyone that he works with. That’s the sign of a skilled leader.
His aim is always nothing short of victory, and that is something to be respected as a motorsport enthusiast and as a business person.
I found this video during my lunch break, and found it to be too funny not to share.
Try and see if you can figure out what Mark Webber is attempting to signal before the end of the video!
Red Bull Racing is classic at making marketing campaigns that people are going to pay attention too. Last year, they created commercials of their Formula 1 cars driving on a frozen lake and also tearing up a beach.
Check out the videos after the jump:
This weekend, two Formula One drivers won our “Driver of the Weekend” award. Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber both put on master class performances in the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend, and deserve credit for their awesomeness. However, both earned this prize for different reasons.
Older video, but it shows that drivers like DC, Webber and Tonio had a bit a humor in them. I wish that the new era of Toro Rosso would make little short films like this. Amusing as hell to watch, since it’ll be the only time you see an F1 car in a bull-fight arena! (Check out the video after the jump)
As the first official race weekend of the 2011 Formula 1 season starts tomorrow. We at the “Starting Grid” thought it proper to provide you with a quick summary of what happened in 2010.
A brief video from Red Bull Racing, explaining the re-introduction of KERS and the Drag Reduction System.
During the F1 Season, we’ll be sharing our thoughts on the new changes to the F1 rule set. However for right now, just enjoy the video.
