Behind the scenes at USF1 (Video parts 1&2)

While some people have raised doubts over whether USF1 will come good on their goal to make it to the F1 grid in 2010, the team haven’t fallen short on their promise to make greater use of social media to show fans what’s going on at their base.

A new series of videos posted on the USF1 site features executive vice president Peter Windsor and Speed TV commentator Bob Varsha interviewing different members of the team.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen an F1 team create this sort of content – Williams have done something similar with their “Factory” series in recent years (though I found the editing made it un-watchable).

But with so many questions being asked about USF1 it’s encouraging to see they’ve taken the route of putting more information about themselves into the public domain – in marked contrast to rivals such as Campos, about whom we’ve heard very little.

They also discuss the refuelling ban and the team’s plan to match rivals Virgin Racing by designing their car without the aid of a wind tunnel, relying instead on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. Watch the videos below and have a look at USF1 on Youtube for more.
