The brutal, visceral force of F1 power against manpower? The force of eight hundred horses against eight mere mortals? No contest, right?
Bath Rugby’s mighty forwards in a scrum down at the Club’s elite Farleigh House training ground. With 900kg of top-class rugby playing power to contend with, Daniel Ricciardo dropped the full force of the RB8 at the right moment.
Commenting on the contest, England international tighthead Henry Thomas said: “It’s not every day you get to do something like that. We love testing ourselves on the biggest stage but not many players can say they’ve scrummed down against a Formula One car.”
Daniel Ricciardo added: “I was excited about the challenge as it’s definitely something I’ve never experienced before! Seeing the rugby players take their positions behind the scrum machine right in front of me was somewhat…strange. But my competitiveness kicked in, the Honey Badger took over, and I was determined to beat them!”
