Cape Town - Daniel Ricciardo was involved in a crash at Silverstone on Monday during a filming session showcasing the new RB14.

The 2018 challenger reportedly sustained damage to the front wing, nose, suspension and floor but Red Bull say that the incident is only a minor setback and is not expected to impact the start of their pre-season testing in Barcelona next week.

"Loosened everything up today in the new RB14 running the one off paint scheme. The break was too long so enjoyed putting the helmet back on" Ricciardo said on Twitter after the session, where the RB14 was limited to just 100km of running under strict regulations.

The Aussie is said to have come away from the crash unscathed and replacement parts will be fitted in time for next Monday.
