Jaime Alguersuari takes his RedBull F1 car to the beach – Click above to watch video after the jump

Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari got to spend some time at the beach in the Dominican Republic, only he did it with his car.

Normally, a Formula One pilot does their best to stay out of the sand trap, but Alguersuari ran his monococque up and down Juanillo Capcana Beach, then finished off with some donuts because that's apparently what you do when you take a 700-horsepower open-wheeler to the beach and you can't find the bar... Follow the jump to see the vid.

      ummm. ok.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Makes no sense, but kinda cool. Like to see what the commercial will be like.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is pointless and borderline stupid.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow, just, WOW!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Awesome!

        I want to know what they did to the sand prior to running the car. You can tell it was rolled.

        I suddenly want a F1 rallycross event.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Maybe they try to sell the F1 car to rich sheiks to use them as mighty stupid desert cruisers!?
        • 4 Years Ago
        yeah, there are sooo many sheiks in the Dominican Republic.

      Did they have a reason for doing this?
        • 4 Years Ago
        @-E
        reason: Red bull being Red bull
        Not like they are gonna win a F-1 championship anyways, may get some use out of this car for publicity's sake, which is all Red Bull is doing at any giving time...
        But the footage are awesome, new year jump, airplane stunt/racing... all pretty cool.

        1. Red Bull: 156pts
        2. Ferrari: 136pts
        And so far no one seems to be closing the gap between them and Red Bull.

        yea hes right...although that doesn't look like the Toro Rosso livery Alguersuari is part of the red bull franchise and since he doesn't really need to be doing massive amounts of simulator work, he can promote F1 and RB to people and potential investors.

        You obviously are clueless to the current F1 Season!
      • 4 Years Ago
      WTF?

      This is a head-scratcher, almost bizarre.

      My mother's Celica can do donuts on sand, too.

        • 4 Years Ago
        I doubt it. FWD cars are not so great on the sand and have a very hard time doing donuts... Also, your moms Celica probably doesn't sound ANYTHING like this.

        I do however agree with you, and have no idea what the point of this was.
      • 4 Years Ago
      If they don't mind pulling pointless stunts like this, why don't they try to do something interesting like drive at Bonneville and set a speed record for a F1 car. Apparently, it's not like they care about the car or anything.
      • 4 Years Ago
      What's better than donuts on a beach? Body shots on Eva Mendes!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Id argue that he's already found the bar if he's doing this
