With the debris flapping around, the star can be seen trying to rip it off with one hand while the other continues to steer his Red Bull.

Fortunately for him he was able to see off the bit of plastic – and the challenge of Ferrari’s Leclerc.

Afterwards he said: “It was really tough. It was a good race.

“We were battling hard at the front and I started to play the long game.

“They are quick in the corners and we are quick on straights but I felt we had a little more pace.

“I just tried to get by. It wasn’t easy playing smart tricks in the last corner but eventually got ahead.

“After that he was constantly in the DRS. We are happy we can kickstart the season.

“It seems like once you get quite close because with the cars even when you got half a second you can get quite a good exit.

“It makes it a lot more tricky and harder to plan your pass.”
