What do Austrian and Australian formula one drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo have in common aside from the fact that they both drive for Red Bull? And my answer is … ‘Austr__ia’.
Being an Austrian Australian I find this play on words somewhat amusing and on the odd occasion a source of confusion when travelling.
Despite their differences and recent spats I hope Verstappen and Ricciardo remain civil and continue driving for Red Bull as a team. It’s great seeing such a public connection with an Austrian and Australian working together in such a high profile (and high ego) sport.
