At the start of August, Red Bull Racing dropped a clip of Daniel Ricciardo taking one of the racing outfit’s F1 cars on a roadtrip through the United States. The second part to that video has now been released and this time, it features Ricciardo’s teammate Max Verstappen.
The video kicks off with Verstappen behind the wheel of an older, V8-powered Red Bull racer at the Continental Divide in Colorado. Despite the less-than-ideal road conditions, RBR’s driver travels through some breathtaking areas in the Rocky Mountains.
As the clip progresses, Verstappen eventually finds his way to Miami, speeding through the city’s streets and drifting around on one of its beaches. The video concludes with Verstappen driving alongside Ricciardo in a second F1 car in Miami as they joke about what it would be like if an F1 race were held there.
Just a few short months ago, there was talk about a Formula 1 race being held in Miami as early as 2019. However, a decision was made by the sport and local authorities to postpone the race until 2020 at the earliest.
Residents in Miami will get a taste of Formula 1 much earlier than 2020 thanks to a four-day live fan festival that will take place from the middle of next week. The event will see a number of different F1 cars perform demonstration runs on local roads, including a section where the drivers will be able to perform some crowd-pleasing donuts.
A similar live event was held last year in London and attracted more than 100,000 people.
