Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez were at the Milton Keynes factory of Red Bull Racing for factory day just ahead of the start of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. The new driver pairing were involved in a lot of fun activities at the factory.

The energy drink company is well-known for creating funny and bubbly videos with their drivers involved in various activities before races during a season. When Daniel Ricciardo was part of the team, Verstappen and the ever-smiling Australian would come up with banter-filled entertaining videos which were fan favourites.

Verstappen’s new team-mate Pérez has driven for more serious and smaller teams like the Racing Point and Sauber F1 teams in the past. The Mexican must find these filming days a novel experience.

Verstappen and Pérez are see in high spirits during the factory day as they race on all vehicles on wheels they could find inside and around the factory. Red Bull Racing’s engine supplier Honda is set to leave Formula 1 at the end of this season.

The Japanese manufacturer seems to have made the performance gains it needs to make the 2021 Red Bull challenger (RB16B) a title contender. In the video, we see a variety of Honda vehicles including the NSX Supercar and their electric vehicle.

After a rock solid three days of pre-season testing, the Milton Keynes-based team ticked all the boxes in terms of reliability and performance. The Red Bull Racing team is in a buoyant mood heading into the new season and the new driver pairing portray that in this new video.

The team will hope that they can return to title-winning ways and their drivers will retain the same bonhomie in their relationship at the end of a competitive season.
