New film footage shows an F1 racing car sliced into two!  UPDATE Today Sauber released high-resolution photos of the cutaway racing car

05/31/12 And now for something completely different: for the last two years the Sauber F1 Team mechanics have been using their downtime to slice a Formula One racing car lengthwise down the middle with the precision of true craftsmen. A new film is now set to give this cutaway model its first public viewing.

“Formula One is all about cutting-edge technology,” says Chief Designer Matt Morris at the start of the five minute film. “We’ve all seen countless pictures of racing cars, but wouldn’t it be great to really explore inside it – as if peering into the core of an apple?”

Morris quite literally gets underneath the skin of the F1 car, pointing out where and how the individual components are located within the chassis. Everything is packed in pretty tightly, with no space even for his aforementioned apple. Sergio Pérez is also on hand to demonstrate the driver’s seating position.
