Formula One is all about details. And sure, there are some parts that are more obvious than others, but the attention to detail on every single piece of the vehicle is quite astounding.
Take, for instance, this simple, unassuming bolt. You would think that the Red Bull F1 team would just get one off the shelf whenever one is needed. You would technically be right, and its life before it gets to that shelf is the amazing part.
It is not a case of going down to the Home Depot and buying the set of bolts. No sir. These bolts are designed, they aren’t bought. They are the thoroughbreds of a bolt world, fit for any task that comes their way. And seeing one go from concept to final product to installed in the race car isn’t only cool, for reasons I can’t quite explain, it is also emotional.
Like seeing your child go to college, probably. I don’t know, I don’t have the child. And this is a bolt.
Not the human. But there is something very poignant about its life. Never thought I’d have an emotional attachment to a bolt.
