Red Bull Racing has been testing its new cockpit 'aeroscreen' during today's practice sessions at the Russian Grand Prix.

The cockpit protection device, which has been likened to a riot shield by Formula One fans, sits in front of the driver's head in order to protect them from flying parts of other cars in the event of an accident.
