Vienna, Austria - Red Bull is facing the possibility of a €30 000 fine after Max Verstappen's spectacular blast up and down the famous Kitzbuhel ski slopes last week.

A crowd of 3500 gathered in the Austrian Alps as Verstappen, F1's teenage sensation, slipped and slid in a F1 car fitted with snow chains, some 1600m above sea level.

Verstappen and Red Bull were helping to promote the 2016 Austrian grand prix, but local authorities reportedly did not see the bright side of the F1 snow stunt.

Potential damage to the environment?

Tiroler Tageszeitung newspaper reports that administrative proceedings have been filed against Red Bull, as official approval for the event was not granted.

Kitzbuhel director Michael Berger confirmed the news, saying approval must be given for the driving of any vehicle outside normal traffic or fenced areas, due to the potential for causing damage to nature.
