Ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen takes on Yuki Tsunoda in a huge 500bhp truck race across the Erzberg mine.

The trucks are custom built for the off-road race and feature wheels that also weigh around 700kg, with the circuit loosely resembling an off-road configuration of the Red Bull Ring.

Both drivers are head-to-head as part of the Unserious Race Series, where Red Bull pits two drivers against each other on vehicles they do not usually drive.

“I’ve never really done anything properly offroad. I have driven my dad’s rally car, but that was more on the tarmac,” said Verstappen.

“Honestly, the approach of my qualifying lap was to survive! It was a lot of fun."
