VIDEO: An F1 car against a rugby scrum


Daniel Ricciardo is used to pushing hard in an F1 car, but never before has he had to take on a rugby scrum.

That was, until Red Bull decided to go up against English Premiership side Bath Rugby at its Farleigh House training facility, with the 2012 championship winning RB8 pushing against the Bath first choice pack.

"I didn’t quite understand what they wanted to do at first, I was like, ‘How do you do that?’" Ricciardo told the official Red Bull website. "But obviously now that I’ve seen it, I think it’s really cool.

"I like things that are different and that no-one’s ever done before, so it’s cool to be a part of that idea. Then the backdrop and everything at Bath is very cool too."

Check out the full video from Red Bull below, and look out for an impressive kick from Ricciardo at the end of the clip...
