Max Verstappen’s Winter break in the Austrian Alps

F1 World Champion takes F1 car for a spin on a track built out of ice in the Austrian Alps. Although he’d never driven an F1 car on ice before, the Red Bull Racing driver sped through a circuit built out of ice on specially designed Pirelli spiked tyres, with his helmet and race car carrying the number ‘1’ for the very first time. He went on to say: “This was my first time on the ice with a Formula One car and I’ve been really looking forward to it. Verstappen had driven car #33 since 2015, so seeing #1 on his livery for the first time was a special moment. After his icy “warm-up” laps, Verstappen will soon face an unprecedented 23-race marathon in his first season as reigning Formula One World Champion. Verstappen closed by saying: “It looks a bit different, but at the end of the day it’s still a Formula One car.
