Although F1 is in its winter recess, Sebastien Buemi has set a new record.

The Toro Rosso driver slid down the three high-speed waterslides at Aquaparc in Le Bouveret, Switzerland, faster than the previous record holder.

"I have a competitive spirit, whatever game I am taking part in," said the Swiss 22-year-old, according to Le Nouvelliste.

He admitted that launching himself into waterslides as quickly as possible is a risky off-season pursuit.

"It can be dangerous in the sense that you can slip over, that's true. But I was careful," smiled Buemi.

"Before coming, I got the 'ok' from my team," he added.
