Reigning world champions Red Bull left Austin without paying a bill - Sebastian Vettel's R19 000 customised cowboy boots.

Prior to the US Grand Prix, the team pre-ordered a pair of customised, Red Bull-branded cowboy boots for Vettel.

HAPPY TO PAY

Specialist boot maker Noel Escobar said: "We worked through the night but no one came to pick them up.

"Red Bull owes me $2150."

Red Bull reports that it had to cancel the order at short notice but is happy to pay the bill.
