In a new Red Bull Racing video, Max Verstappen makes a trip from Palermo to Monza. In a video titled 'Ciao Palermo, Monza is calling', it becomes clear that Verstappen has not taken it easy after his victory at Zandvoort.

It's stunning footage produced by Red Bull Racing ahead of the Italian Grand Prix. According to Red Bull's press release, 'Red Bull wouldn't be Red Bull if they didn't take a pre-Monza mini-break with a bit of filming'. Verstappen is said to have asked to take the RB7 for a holiday in Sicily's capital, Palermo.

Road Trip for Verstappen

''Under the title 'Ciao Palermo, Monza is calling', Red Bull's latest road trip pays tribute to one of Italy's most evocative and vibrant cities. The RB7 starts at Palermo's oldest and most famous street market, Ballarò, then tears through the city's narrow alleys to the larger boulevards, including Via Vittorio Emanuele, which runs through the historic center.''

''And after arriving at the beautiful Quattro Canti, where the urge to eat a string of doughnuts in a sea of petals was impossible to resist, we head towards the Porta Felice and the Foro Italico promenade, past YouTube star Jakidale, before finally arriving at the beautiful Mondello beach, where after meeting Wakeboard world champion and Red Bull athlete Massimiliano Piffaretti, the RB7 is loaded onto a boat to complete its journey'', concludes the statement.
