The celebration is one Norris that has used throughout his racing career, where he slams his bottle on the ground to cause the champagne to explode upwards, but says he’s never had a bottle smash apart before and wished Vietti a speedy recovery.

In Moto 3 , Celestino Vietti carved his way to third to secure his first podium of the campaign. However, the post-race celebrations for all three proved eventful with Vietti requiring stitches in his hand when he broke the bottle of Prosecco he was handed on the podium .

“He made a bit of a mess of it,” when Motorsport.com asked Norris about it. “The only thing I saw was that they have Prosecco bottles [in MotoGP] so I don’t know if that made a difference in it. I don’t know [if the pressure on the bottle caused it to smash], that’s the only thing I can blame it on.

“I have never broken a bottle in all the times I’ve done it and I’ve done some fairly aggressive ones and others who have done aggressive ones by jumping from podium to step below and then smashing the bottle – but not actually smashing it itself.

“The only thing I can say is practice more maybe with champagne, but apart from that he got unlucky and I wish him the best in his recovery.”

Valentino Rossi’s protege Vietti finished third in last weekend’s Andalusian round of the 2020 Moto3 World Championship, and required stitches after the top of his prosecco bottle broke off and sliced his hand open.

Commenting on it last Sunday after also finishing third in the MotoGP race, nine-time grand prix world champion Rossi said: “Celestino had an injury on the podium because he broke the bottle and he had stitches in his hand. He makes like this [gestures hitting bottle off the ground] with the champagne for it to explode and broke the bottle and he had a cut in the hand. [It needed] I don't know, five or six stitch points.”

Vietti’s podium woe was followed by both VR46 riders in the Moto2 race, Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi, tangling with each other as they tried to shake hands on the cool-down lap.

Both riders came away from the embarrassing incident unharmed and made it to the second and third steps of the podium, while team boss Rossi labelled what happened to each of his riders as a “disaster”.
