You wouldn’t believe what we saw yesterday on a race track near Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo and Jenson Button dribbling, passing and shooting footballs… from behind the wheels of McLaren race-cars.
This unbelievably “extreme” sport became a mind-blowing reality when TAG Heuer turned the famous Circuito del Jarama into a gigantic football pitch. The two TAG Heuer boys had a total gas showing us, with great flair and at ridiculously high speeds, just what “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” really means. Drifts and co-driving experience for CR7; shots, donuts and slaloms for the Formula One champion. It was a super-charged, super-fun mix of two sporting worlds. Perhaps even the genesis of an entirely new sport. Carball, anyone? Foot-mula 1?
