Dutch driver wows 3,500 fans at 1,600m with snow showrun.

Max Verstappen created history in January 2016 when he hit the Alps to drive a Formula One car on the famous Hahnenkamm ski slope.

Here is all you need to know:

– In the build-up to the legendary World Cup alpine ski race, the Dutch driver travelled 1,600m up to the Streif run to unleash a Red Bull Racing world-championship winning car around a track in front of 3,500 spectators.

Red Bull Racing technicians had to make specially made snow chains, which played a big part in ensuring the first F1 showrun on an Alpine peak was possible.

– Afterwards, the then Scuderia Toro Rosso driver revealed: “It was really cool and was so much fun. Keeping the car on the track was a real challenge.”
