Max Verstappen And Red Bull Could Face Fines For Ski Slope Stunt

It seems that Red Bull Racing’s most recent promotional stunt with Max Verstappen could backfire as local authorities are said to be considering fining both the driver and the team.

Local newspaper Tiroler Tageszeitung says Red Bull didn’t receive proper approval for the event, as they should have done.

While being allowed to drive on the slopes, Verstappen wasn’t permitted to drive the Formula One car on areas outside the regular routes and fenced areas over concerns damage would be caused to the area.

The report suggests Austrian F1 team could face up to 30,000 euros in fines. At this stage, Red Bull hasn’t commented on the issue.

Illegal or not, the stunt was indeed impressive. All Verstappen needed to drive the F1 car up the steep slope was a set of grippy tires and some snow chains with the fresh, winter air providing the perfect setting for the screaming V8 concerto.
