Following their recent video where they pitted David Coulthard against an upside-down stunt plane, Red Bull sent Max Verstappen along to race against a World War 2 era Spitfire ahead of the British Grand Prix!

This was after Verstappen had already despatched other British icons like a London taxo, a doube decker bus and a white van man (with two of his mates!)

The British Grand Prix is regarded as another home race for Red Bull. While Austrian owned, the team operates out of Milton Keynes near Silverstone, and Verstappen acknowledged the important of the event for Red Bull.

“The British love their motorsport, which is special to see, so I’m always very happy to be in the country, but of course to be at Silverstone is even better. It was great to see all of these typically British vehicles on track with the RB7 and I hope the fans enjoy this bit of fun before the race at the weekend.”
