Infiniti and Red Bull have teamed up to create a four-part series that explores the development of a successful F1 car.

The first clip delves into the design and development of an F1 car which normally takes about five months to complete. However, the rule changes are extensive for 2014 so the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team started a little earlier this year.

Once the initial design is conceived, a 60 percent scale model is built and subjected to extensive wind tunnel testing. Speaking of the latter, thousands of parts are tested in the wind tunnel on a weekly basis.

Even after the car is built, it is subjected to almost 30,000 design changes over the course of a season. On the RB9 alone, 300 designers, machinists and aerodynamicists worked to perfect the car and its performance.
