Lando Norris took Johnny Herbert on a joy around around the Silverstone track in a McLaren supercar with the end result a repair bill for the rookie racer.

Norris took to the Silverstone circuit for a publicity stints ahead of his and McLaren’s home race, the British Grand Prix.

As part of that he took former F1 driver turned Sky Sports commentator Herbert for a lap of the Northamptonshire track in a McLaren 720S.

Norris lost control of the car through Maggots and Becketts, beaching the $250 000-dollar car in the gravel.

Herbert tried his hand at shoveling Norris and the car out of the gravel but it was not to be and a truck was went out to the save the car.

Unfortunately it may not save Norris from the bill that awaits him.

“We’ll send you the bill,” tweeted the McLaren team.

The team was of course joking, at least we hope.
