Ricciardo and Verstappen take you around the principality in miniature.

Let Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo take you on a lap of the Monaco Grand Prix as you’ve never seen it before.
Instead of their usual lap routine, the Red Bull Racing drivers instead add their voices to a miniature route around the street circuit using slot car kits and models filmed with live action and digital animation.
Monaco is home for both drivers and, in the video, Verstappen waxes lyrical about being able to scoot from his home to the track and of the history of the place from the five wins of Graham Hill to the six achieved by Ayrton Senna.

Ricciardo, meanwhile, likens it to “riding a bike through a supermarket”, his highlight going flat out in sixth gear at the swimming pool section of the track.
