Austria - The Red Bull Racing pair of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen decided to have a bit of fun by racing each other in Aston Martins with caravans latched to the cars.

Good old fun

The young team mates raced each other on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, home of the upcoming Austrian Grand Prix.

As quoted by the Red Bull Racing Team website, Ricciardo said: "I wasn't sure if it would be very controlled and just for the 'glamour shots' or if we could really have some fun. 

"Fortunately, we got to have some fun.

"It's like giving a little bit of a sweet to a kid. You want more, so we just kept pushing it until we lost the caravans. [Max] was crying with laughter and so was I."

Drifting with caravans

Max added: "We were pretty sure that we were going to crash [the caravans]. 

"It wasn't on purpose but then I started drifting a bit in the car and I could see in the mirror that the caravan was on one wheel!"
