Red Bull show how to look good for a night race

What do you need when you're about to go racing at night? A really cool pair of sunglasses, of course!

Actually, it's not such a bad idea for Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen (above) and Daniel Ricciardo (below). While this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix will be held under floodlights, much of their preparation will be in the full glare of the desert sun.

Free Practice 1 on Friday will be held in the middle of the day when only mad dogs, Englishmen and Formula 1 drivers dare to venture out. The same is true for final practice on Saturday.

So a stylish set of sunglasses is just what the team ordered up for their boys, with DITA Eyewear getting the team's nod. Founded in 1995, DITA says that it creates "a discreet luxury" with bold character frames. The company uses F1-esque levels of innovative technology to achieve new interpretations of timeless shapes.

Max is certainly working it hard to look supercool with his eye-catching new eye attire. Meanwhile Daniel's high beam smile alone means that shades are going to be mandatory for everyone working in the Red Bull garage in Sakhir!
