Max Verstappen’s F1 Ski Slope Run

When you’re eighteen, your heart is filled with adventure as you seek-thrills where no one else might. So when 18-year-old F1 racing driver Max Verstappen decided to take his Red Bull RB7 race car to Austria for some fun in the snow, we weren’t too surprised.

Obviously, F1 cars aren’t built for the snow, so the F1 car was first updated with a higher ride height and studded tires with snow chains to make the venture a bit more plausible. Verstappen had his car delivered close to the ski slope, where a helicopter picked it up and took it to Streif, a famous downhill ski track. It was an extreme idea that fits the Red Bull mold quite nicely. You can see what happens in the video above.
