Classic video: Ricciardo and Verstappen face chaotic Christmas challenge

During their time as Red Bull teammates, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo provided plenty of off-track entertainment. The pair took part in a particularly amusing festive game in 2016, as captured in a video shared by the team.

Ahead of Daniel Ricciardo's return to Red Bull as a reserve driver in 2023, now seems like a good time to relive one of his amusing off-track moments with Max Verstappen during his previous tenure with the team.

Ricciardo and Verstappen made for an entertaining line-up at the squad between 2016 and 2018, having often taken part in various challenges together.

One of these was a festive game in 2016, a year in which Red Bull achieved a swift 1.92 second pit-stop.

The drivers were challenged to throw as many snowballs at each other as possible in that same time frame, with one arm behind their backs and without moving their feet. All while dressed as Santa and an elf too!

Who won? Watch the classic video below to find out...
