(SOUNDBITE) (English) RED BULL DRIVER DANIEL RICCIARDO SAYING: "Coming here to get a good result. You know I don't think I have even had a top five here so just to really crack it. I mean I want to at least get on that podium so that's my target, that's my big motivation to come here and crack that little bit that I have been missing." 4. (SOUNDBITE)(English) RED BULL DRIVER MAX VERSTAPPEN SAYING: "Yeah I mean it is always positive if you have won the last race and had good vibes but you have to start all over again here and try to get a good result. I mean I have good memories from last year especially in the wet but lately I think the car has been improving quite a lot so I am looking forward to start over here again and see how competitive we can be." STORY: Red Bull Formula One drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen visited the beach arena in the Morumbi district of Sao Paulo on Wednesday (November 8) to play an iconic Brazilian game. While beach volleyball is a popular Brazilian game played by the sea there is a soccer variant with players banned from using their hands or arms in play, using soccer skills instead. The drivers are in Sao Paulo for Sunday's (November 12) Brazilian Grand Prix, the penultimate race in a long season calendar. While Verstappen comes to Brazil looking for a back-to-back Grand Prix victory, his team mate Daniel Ricciardo is just looking for a good result at Sao Paulo's Interlagos track. Verstappen won the Mexican Grand Prix two weeks ago, his second win of the season, and is enjoying good results at the tail end of the season. Ricciardo lies fourth in the Formula One drivers' championship, compared to Verstappen's sixth, but Interlagos has never given him a result better than eighth. The Australian needs a high placing or win in Brazil if he wants to keep fourth place in the points table as Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen is only 14 behind him. At the top of the championship Lewis Hamilton is already crowned the 2017 World Champion. There is a maximum of 50 points available for the winners of the two remaining Grands Prix. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is second in the championship and trying to keep Hamilton's team mate Valtteri Bottas, 15 points behind him, at bay.
