Red Bull Formula One drivers Daniel Ricciardo (above) and Max Verstappen swopping their racing suits for American football gear before the United States Grand Prix. Training with the Del Valle Cardinals High School team on Thursday, Verstappen, who beat his team-mate in kicking the ball, said on the Red Bull Racing website: "In Holland, we're more famous for soccer, but it was a cool experience, and interesting to play with an egg-shaped ball." Said the Australian Ricciardo: "It was very cool. I love ball sports and it's always good to try something new. I think I did OK! I think my catching was OK."
