The latest driver to be signed under the Red Bull development driver scheme is 16 year old Max Verstappen. He will be the youngest driver, at 17, to start an F1 Grand Prix. Prior to his F1 contract, Max has spent most of his career in karts and in Formula 3. Keen to show off his skills, Red Bull painted up a spare RB8 in Toro Rosso colours, and let the car and Max lose on his home country of Holland.

The run went relatively smoothly, with Max bravely doing burnouts, donuts and generally being very aggressive with the car. All was well until he got the car stuck, before crashing while trying to spin the car around. Thankfully, the damage was minor, and after a front wing change, he was back out.

Introduction, Exterior

Introduction

On a daily basis, we are used to seeing the conventional multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) cruising our roads, with most of their designs looking rather plain like any other sedan.

There is, however, one particular make that stands out in terms of design, especially for the MPV line. From technology, innovativeness, and design, it doesn’t exactly win other competitors, but yet still manages to stand out.
