Red Bull facing penalty after Verstappen snow run

Red Bull Racing is facing the possibility of a EUR 30,000 fine after Max Verstappen’s spectacular blast up and down the famous Kitzbuhel ski slopes last week.

A crowd of 3,500 gathered in the Austrian Alps as Verstappen, F1’s teenage sensation, slipped and slid in a F1 car fitted with snow chains, some 1600 metres above sea level.

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

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.
