Sebastien Buemi has been keeping busy over Formula One's winter break but still found the time to set a new record.

The Toro Rosso driver slid down 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," the 22-year-old told 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," he smiled. "But I was careful. Before coming, I got the 'ok' from my team."
