Starting the Red Bull RB7 Renault
Last year in October I started to built the Formula 1 World Championship car of the Red Bull Racing Team, the RB6 Renault. Poorly I had to cancel the manufacturing of that car, because I made to many mistakes. After I finished another car, the famous Porsche 917, I started to build the RB7. With the knowledge I won in the manufacturing of the RB6, I’m very confident, that the RB7 will be great, when he will be finished.
Then, in April 2011, after reading the 2011 FIA F1 Technical Regulations and about two months of searching and generate information, pictures and technical drawings, I started to built this car.
Then I was back in Graz (which is around 410 miles away from my home town) for two months, and the manufacturing of the RB7 was interrupted. In July I came back home and continued.
The shape was covered by a blue cardboard layer and the very well formed side pods and the airbox were added.
After I glued all sponsoring and partnership logos on the monocoque, I began to varnish the car. Yesterday i finished the water and oil radiators. The next things will be engine and gearbox drivetrain.
