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.
