How a wind tunnel works - Sauber F1 team explains.

Definitely worth the watch if you have about 40 minutes and are interested in this type of thing.

Im blown away by just how much actually goes into wind tunnel building/testing.

They do them at 60%. Regulations dont let them use a full size car.

The closer to full size the more accurate the data will be.
