F1 rivals Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas are set to meet for a duel this weekend in Sweden, as the pair make up one of the Race of Champions shootouts.
The annual competition has headed to Pite Havsbad for an ice and snow-covered encounter involving some of the world's top drivers from across various disciplines.
This weekend will set up square-offs between drivers from a diverse range of series, including F1, NASCAR, IndyCar, Le Mans, WRC and WRX.
All competing in equal machinery, the drivers will form alliances on Saturday as they race with compatriots for the ROC Nations Cup to be crowned the world's fastest nation.
But the main event is on Sunday, when the individual Race of Champions means it is every driver for themselves in a series of shootouts that builds up to an epic finale.
Vettel and Bottas are one of the headline rivalries already confirmed for Sunday, while seven-time NASCAR Champion Jimmie Johnson will go up against two-time F1 World Champion Mika Hakkinen.
World Rally Champions Sebastien Loeb and Petter Solberg are another eye-catching pairing, while early shootouts will pitch Jamie Chadwick against Mick Schumacher, and Colton Herta against Helio Castroneves.
There's also the mouth-watering possibility of an old McLaren rivalry being rekindled, as Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard could end up battling each other, along with the prospect of a Vettel versus Hakkinen fight, or even an intra-family scrap between the Solbergs.
