In a stunt for Red Bull, Bath Rugby showed off against Red Bull F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo to see whether man’s brute strength is still more powerful that a finely-tuned speed machine. The good news: As long as Skynet’s mechanoids aren’t shooting, we can still go Ivan Drago in the war of the machines.
