Classic video: Ricciardo and Verstappen face chaotic Christmas challenge

During their time as Red Bull team-mates, 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.

Of all the relationships between Formula 1 drivers, 'Maxiel' between Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo is one of the most entertaining.

One of these occasions 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!
