Red Bull Racing’s 2017 didn’t get off to the best of starts when the new RB13 broke down just moments into the first pre-season test in Spain.

A sensor issue was the reason Ricciardo stopped on track at Turn 3 after just four laps.

It comes, rather awkwardly, after Red Bull Racing revealed its new car with an ‘RB13: Unlucky for some’ sign above their new car during the reveal. The team has also been using the hashtag #BreakSuperstition.

13. Unlucky for some?

Luckily though the team could see the funny side…

Fair play, that’s actually pretty funny.
