Red Bull Drivers Get Special Race Suits for Austria

Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen are gearing up to race in Austria with some special lederhosen race suits. Although there’s no competitive advantage, they look pretty decent.

The race suits even have socks and buttons! The Red Bull duo will also be yodeling over team radio and have a special nutritional diet of schnitzel and strudel. The drivers will be hoping to waltz through this weekend in style.

Will other teams follow suit? I do hope to see some god-awful Morris dancing crap littered over the McLaren driver’s at Silverstone. Maybe the Haas team will get Romain Grosjean and Esteban Guttierez dressed for a barn dance for the race in Texas later in the year?

Dwight says no

Any of the above accessories still look far better than the amended version of the halo protection thing that made a brief appearance in Practice in Austria. The device threatens to make every Formula One car next season look like the world’s most expensive flip-flop.
