One of the finest joys of rural life is taking your beater truck or ATV out on the frozen lakes in the winter and acting the fool with little fear of reprisal. Now do that in an F1 car. Magnificent.

Since Red Bull Racing isn't one to shy away from stunts for a bit of exposure, it comes as no surprise they've dropped Buemi into a different kind of winter sled for a rather non-traditional F1 run. Who needs highly-groomed world-class race tracks when a frozen lake and some rocks will do. We like this idea. F1 needs an ice-racing series, we'll chip in the tire studs.
