There was more trouble for Red Bull today as Daniel Ricciardo was left waiting in the factory reception area for five times as long as normal.

‘We knew Daniel was coming in,’ explained a team spokesman. ‘But the receptionist thought he said he was here to see Mr Toft and then as Mr Toft was on his way down, we realised Dan was actually here to see Mr Touper-Toft and that meant a bit of a delay while we found him at the back of the factory.’

The Australian driver’s woes were compounded by the appearance of Lewis Hamilton who arrived and was able to go straight into a meeting for the first time in a while.
