Take a six-time Aussie V8 Supercar champion, pair him with a three-time Aussie Formula One Grand Prix winner, and drop the two of them into one of Australia’s most famous racing venues on the eve of the 2016 F1 world championship season. Set them against a backdrop of a picture perfect Melbourne autumn day. And then add the key ingredient – the fully race-spec’d Triple Eight Project Sandman. Sound like a recipe for something special? It was for Jamie Whincup and Daniel Ricciardo at Sandown this week when the Red Bull Racing Australia V8 star and the Red Bull Racing F1 ace let loose in the one-of-a-kind Triple Eight Sandman.
