Why The Hell Would A Formula 1 Car Race Down A Ski Slope?

A great way to avoid paying for a lift ticket.

They put snow chains on it like it's an old Pontiac chugging to the chalet. 

But this is a Formula 1 race car driven by F1 star Max Verstappen and it's actually carving up the slope in a demonstration run.

Watch Verstappen steer the snow-averse speed machine in Kitzbühel, Austria, on Thursday.

The vehicle sure kicks up a lot of powder ...

... but if that were us behind the wheel, we'd start on the bunny slope.
