Off the Grid: Austria features chat with Red Bull’s dynamic duo


In Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing has perhaps F1’s most dynamic young driver pairing, if not the out-and-out youngest combined pairing on the grid.

As part of Off the Grid: Austria, which premieres on Friday, October 21, at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, NBCSN’s Will Buxton caught up with the pair of them at Red Bull’s home track, and home race – the Austrian Grand Prix from the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.

Ricciardo is in his sixth overall, fifth full-time and third complete season with Red Bull. Verstappen is in his second year, and the 19-year-old Dutchman was called up from Scuderia Toro Rosso earlier this year to the senior squad, and promptly won on debut in Spain.

It’s an enlightening and fun chat Buxton has with the pair of them, which you can see above. It will air as part of the full show on Friday, a preview of which you can see below.
