...BUT YOU LEFT WITHOUT HIS BOOTS?: Red Bull will have to cough up over R19 000 for designer cowboy boots the team commissioned and forgot to pick-up at the 2012 US Grand Prix.

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

"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.
