Pierre Goesley came to work in a mini supercarJanuary 30, 2019
If the teams worked hard almost the whole winter, except with a break for the Christmas holidays, creating new cars, the riders return from their vacations just now. So Pierre Gasley started work on the basis of the Red Bull Racing in Milton Keynes, which is devoted to a small, but in its own way curious video, shot by the press service of the team.
The essence of the 33-second video is that the French racer comes to work on the exclusive supermini, but with the habits of the Aston Martin Cygnet V8 supercar presented last summer and existing in a single copy.
The machine is really small, because basically it’s an ultra-compact Toyota iQ city car, but it has a 4.7-liter engine from the Aston Martin Vantage S sports car with a capacity of 430 hp. The suspension, brakes and transmission were borrowed from it, and so that all this could be packed under the Cygnet body, it had to be redone considerably.
The result was a miniature monster, and here, painted in the traditional Red Bull Racing gamut, Pierre rushed to work, got a pass to the corporate parking lot, but, taking into account the “pocket” dimensions of the car, he parked right in the shop where the team members work with Formula 1 cars.
Witty fans immediately began to discuss the video, and among the many comments came across and quite caustic, like: “Anyway, faster than Williams, and more reliable than Renault.”
