(SOUNDBITE) (English) RED BULL RACING DRIVER, MAX VERSTAPPEN, SAYING: "I'm very excited to just get excited just with the new car, new engine and see how it's all going to work together.

Everybody's very motivated and they really want to go for a good result this year.

We have a fresh start of course, but like I said with a new motivation I think that's going to help." 5.

VARIOUS OF VERSTAPPEN AND GASLY DRIVING ON ICE TRACK STORY: Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly were back behind the wheel during the Formula One off season this month, but the surface they raced on was not what either driver was used to.

Both drivers jumped in go-karts and raced around a 3km ice track in the Netherlands, demonstrating their speed and control by performing power slides and donuts.

French 23-year-old Gasly joins Red Bull from Toro Rosso, replacing the departed Australian Daniel Ricciardo who heads to Renault.

Gasly won the GP2 (now Formula Two) title in 2016 and made his F1 debut with Toro Rosso in Malaysia late 2017 before starting his first full season in March last year.

21-year-old Dutchman Verstappen finished fourth in the 2018 drivers standings and will aim to overhaul reigning champion Lewis Hamilton in the coming year.

"I'm very excited to just get excited just with the new car, new engine and see how it's all going to work together.

Everybody's very motivated and they really want to go for a good result this year.

We have a fresh start of course, but like I said with a new motivation I think that's going to help."
