The Formula 1 weekend kicked off in style in Austin on Wednesday as Red Bull drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel took to the city streets in the 2011 championship winning car in front of hundreds of fans.

Heading along Congress Avenue, Vettel and Ricciardo both put on a show behind the wheel of the RB7 car that took Vettel to his second world championship.

Red Bull also rigged up one of the old V8 engines to perform the US national anthem, which you can listen/watch in the video below.

Vettel also performed some donuts using his F1 racer before taking a few lucky fans for a ride in the Infiniti Q50 prototype car that he has helped to design. Check out all of the pictures from the event below.
