F1 drivers take on durian (Video)

FORMULA One drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen took on a different challenge in Singapore over the weekend before the Singapore Grand Prix.

The drivers from Red Bull were tasked with opening a durian and eating the fruit. Like most non-Asians who are unfamiliar with the thorny king of fruits, the outcome was comical.

Armed with a complete tool set with a hammer, saw and pliers, they tried in vain to pry open the durian. Then they used a chair and a squeaky chicken before resorting to throwing it on the floor.

After opening it, they had their first taste of the fruit. Well, it is an acquired taste.
