F1 on ICE
trust the red bull team to be innovative. this is something outstandingly amazing
EVER seen a Formula One car driven at full tilt across a frozen lake?
The Red Bull team decided to celebrate the return of the Canadian Grand Prix to this year's Formula One calendar by heading for a test run in Canada — in mid-winter!
They let Sebastien Buemi — driver for Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso — loose on an ice-covered lake in northern Quebec.
The Swiss ace slipped, slid and spun across the frosty wilderness on the world's only set of studded F1 tyres.
Then it was on to Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for more slithering about as he tried to tame the jittery Red Bull on a snowbound track.
Mad? You bet. And you can see just how crazy by clicking on our super video (above).

Actually i don't think this is a "first".
I seem to remember a short video of Mika driving a merc in the snow....
EDIT: Here it is, not such a great video.
