Turkey returned to the F1 calendar in 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and Red Bull marked the occasion with a spectacular road trip.

Alex Albon (then driving for Red Bull) and AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly took to the streets of Istanbul in their F1 cars, culminating in a sprint across the 15 July Martyrs Bridge.

Istanbul is one of few cities to be located on two continents, situated either side of the Bosphorus Strait that separates Europe and Asia.

Albon and Gasly drove across the 1,560m-long suspension bridge as part of the trip, with the pair performing a pit-stop and doughnuts in one city across two continents at the same moment.
