F1 Stars Ricciardo and Tsunoda Go Head-to-Head in Mini Jet Boat Showdown
While the on-track entertainment at the Miami Grand Prix may have been a bit dull, F1 stars Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda have taken to the water to provide fans with some racing excitement. The drivers, who are used to battling it out on the road, recently jumped in Red Bull’s tiny motorboats for a head-to-race over the waves.

The boats may not provide the same torque as a Formula One car, but they still pack a punch. At 6 feet long, the micro-vessels boast a wildly impressive 294cc 28hp turbojet engine, and they don’t have any breaks. Designed by Jetstream Adventure Boats, you can pick one of these bad boys up for roughly CAD$1600 (AU$1765) to CAD$2900 (AU$3200).
The mini jet boat race between Ricciardo and Tsunoda is the first round of the new (Un)Serious Race Series. “We’ve got some big plans for races this year already but which vehicles would you like to see us race in the next round of the (Un)Serious Race Series?” Red Bull posted in the comment section. We’d personally love to see Max Verstappen on a Vespa in Italy…
You can watch Daniel tackle his buddy into the ocean (and find out who won the race) in the video above.
