Red Bull Racing was able to delight fans with the show run in Kitzbühel. The Formula 1 racing car with snow chains ensured spectacular images on Hahnenkamm Mountain which went around the world.
The Red Bull Racing show car team was faced with the challenge of adapting a F1 car that is not made for cold and snow so that this magnificent, first-time show run became possible.
Snow chains specifically manufactured by the company Pewag, a retuning of the engine and a new adaptation of the setup were necessary in order to celebrate the premiere of an F1 car in the snow on Thursday, January 14.
“I've never driven on snow”, said F1 driver Max Verstappen after the show run. “It was a real challenge and we had to put my tires in chains, was very special. It was great fun and the enthusiasm of fans in Kitzbühel was great.”
