Red Bull’s Milton Keynes factory re-opened its doors on Monday as the four-time world champion team began its preparation for the start of the 2020 Formula One Championship. For the first time in two months, Red Bull’s headquarters at Milton Keynes re-opened its doors after the coronavirus pandemic has forced the team to suspend its activities.
Formula 1 has brought forward and extended its traditional summer shutdown which meant that Red Bull has completely suspended its F1 activities. However, the team’s engineering skill has been turned towards a race of a different kind as the energy drink-owned team has also supported the NHS in the fight against COVID-19. Red Bull has taken part of the Project Pitlane collaboration that was established between the seven UK-based F1 teams.
The statement said: „Our designers and engineers, alongside colleagues at Renault, led the charge to build a new ventilator. The brainchild of Dr Alastair Darwood, a member of the NHS England Clinical Entrepreneur Programme, and Junior Doctor, the BlueSky ventilator is a simple positive pressure ventilator designed for short-term emergency ventilation in trauma and critical care.”
„The concept was identified by the UK government as useful in the fight against COVID-19 as it was easily scalable and had the potential to be mass-produced with relative ease, compared to the more complex ventilators already used in critical care settings.” In a statement, the team has expressed its hope that the worst of the crisis is over and Formula 1 can slowly return to normal, using its engineering prowess for building race cars.
