Video: Verstappen and Gasly's ice cool karting action


It was bulls on ice this week in Holland when Max Verstappen and Red Bull racing team mate Pierre Gasly indulged in an afternoon of frozen karting.

Before the pair head into pre-season testing in sunny Barcelona in less than two weeks, Max and Pierre went back to their roots to put their skills to work at Flevonice's ice track.

From power slides to donuts and Scandinavian flicks, the action was in typical Red Bull style.

"It was a lot of fun," said Max afterwards. "It was the first time ice karting for me and it was actually pretty quick. I think at one point we were going over 100, in sixth gear, so it was great.

"This has been one of the most fun activities we’ve done, there have been a few really good ones but this is definitely one of the best. I had a lot of fun today with Pierre and it was a great way to start the season together."


The 'Gas-man' was equally enthusiastic.

"There were a few nice moments with Max, just drifting side by side. It’s really different to what we would normally do on a proper track with an F1 car, so it’s cool to experience this kind of thing.

"I love competing and when I was racing in the World Karting Championship and the European Championship, the adrenalin and competition made it super exciting, but this was more of a fun day and it was great to do this with Max.

"Now I guess I should find something fun for him to do when he comes to France."
