The latest Red Bull road trip sees Max Verstappen visit Palermo, one of Italy's most evocative and vibrant cities in the team's dominant 2011 Formula 1 car.

Verstappen is told where to go by Red Bull as he sets off from a local market in Sebastian Vettel's championship-winning RB7 before boarding a boat to begin the journey to Monza.

"I have a lot of history with go karting in Italy from back in the day and I always enjoy the food there," said Verstappen.

"Traditionally it hasn't been the best track for our chassis and power unit package. It's fast and the braking zones are really important and quite tough, but I enjoy driving the track and hopefully it will suit us better this year.

"The fans are so passionate about racing and the Tifosi come out in force so I'm looking forward to seeing all of them there in the grandstands."
