Every time he finishes in the top three, Norris hits his champagne bottle off the podium to activate the fizz before spraying.

He did so after the race in Hungary on Sunday, only this time the impact from the bottle caused Verstappen‘s trophy to fall off the podium and smash to pieces.

The two-time world champion didn’t appear too phased by it however, as he proceeded to joke with Norris once the celebrations calmed down.

Fans took to Twitter to react, with one person writing: “Don’t worry about Max’s trophy, Lando… he has a lot of them!”

Another added: “Love how Lando just shrugs like ‘Whatever, Max won’t even notice!'”

A third said: “His reaction is the best, hilarious!”

While a fourth fan joked: “The best entertainment of the afternoon lol.”

Verstappen stormed to victory at the Hungarian GP after overtaking pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton at the first corner.

It marked a record-breaking 12th consecutive win for Red Bull and the Dutchman’s ninth win of the season.

Meanwhile, it was a day to forget for Alpine as both drivers were forced to retire after the opening lap following a collision.

Esteban Ocon’s seat split in two after he made contact with teammate Pierre Gasly and Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu just a few seconds into the race.

The Frenchman was checked out at the medical centre, but he later confirmed that he was okay.
