Aston Martins Red Bull F1 duo Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen destroyed a caravan in the Netherlands as a Red Bull promotional stunt ended in carnage – the demo event held at Zandvoort on Sunday.

Ricciardo carefully destroyed his, swerving across the track before the caravan crashed into grass and smashed into pieces.

Debris – including the toilet – went flying, with Verstappen left to swerve around the mayhem.

“My caravan’s still on the track, so RIP [rest in peace] my caravan,” he said on Fox Sports News.

“It was fun. We did one lap just waving to the crowd, looking like good people.

“Then on the second lap, we didn’t. He lost a wheel [last year]. I lost my toilet.

“We lost a lot of things out there, but our dignity remains.”

The pair raced each other with caravans attached to cars last year, too, with Verstappen losing his wheel in the 2017 race.

“There were a lot of people which was good to see.” Verstappen said, back on home soil.

“Daniel’s caravan is not a caravan anymore which is a good sign. It is completely destroyed! Mine is only running on one wheel now.”
