Max Verstappen comes across as being highly focussed and dedicated to what he does for a living. But that doesn't mean he is invincible to a rather unexpected prank!

In England, the Red Bull team told Max that he should experience a traditional English black taxi cab ride from his hotel to the Red Bull Racing headquarters. Innocently, he accepts this offer.

What Max didn't know was that the whole thing was a setup and the taxi driver is actually Steve Jones, a commentator from channel 4, in disguise. And steve obviously knows Max very well, but managed to play his part exceptionally. He purposefully mistook Max for Michael Schumacher's son, assuming he was from Germany, and raging about the price of Pizza in Monaco.

Clearly Max was losing his cool, but managed to keep himself together until the reveal where he realised that it was all a part of a big prank on him.
