How expensive is champagne in F1?

It has been a staple in Formula 1 as part of the post-race celebrations since the 60s, but how much does each bottle of bubbly cost?

Although champagne has not been exclusively used on the podium, with F1 recently moving back to using sparkling wine after signing a deal with Ferrari Trento, it forms a key part of post-race celebrations.

The origins of the celebration dates back to the 1960s, when sports car driver Jo Siffert accidentally popped a bottle and sprayed the crowd after winning his class at the Le Mans 24 Hours race.

This inadvertently started the tradition that still carries on to this day throughout global motorsport.

But with so many litres of this luxury drink sprayed throughout the season, how much money does such a champagne celebration actually cost?
