Formula 1 might feature some of the best drivers in the world, but their Christmas tree decorating skills are not always to such a high standard...

Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo discovered this when they took part in a festive challenge set by McLaren, as captured in a 2021 video shared by the team.

The drivers were each given a tree and tasked with putting decorations on them – with the catch being that they had to do this whilst blindfolded.

Ricciardo opted for the approach of throwing baubles in the hope they would stick, while Norris had his efforts foiled by his then-teammate.
