SNOW RUN: Kitzbühel
Hahnenkamm Bahn, Kitzbühel, Austria.
We've done donuts on a helipad high above Dubai, we've blasted along the world's highest driveable road in India and we've driven hot laps on almost every kind of surface from dirt, to mud, to frozen lakes and sand. But attempting to power our trusty RB7 up a stretch of the fearsome Hahnenkamm mountain, home of the world's most daunting downhill ski races, with Scuderia Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen strapped in comes as daring as most.
After days of preparation, 3,500 astonished onlookers took to the mountain top on Thursday as the crew fired up the Renault RS7, Max dropped into first gear and blasted up the incline, showering spectators with a massive tail of snowy spray as the chains bit into the surface.
