Illegal Immigrants Hitch A Ride In Ferrari F1 Truck Heading To Britain

Two suspected illegal immigrants were accidentally transported to the British Grand Prix by a team supplier for Ferrari.

The Telegraph reports that two immigrants hitched a ride inside an F1 truck and were only discovered when the team started to unload at the Silverstone circuit. The two people were quickly handed over to authorities.

A team spokeswoman told French authorities that the immigrants likely boarded the truck near the French port of Calais and hitched a ride across the English Channel.

According to humanitarian organizations, hundreds of migrants live in Calais looking for ways to enter the UK.

The Ferrari team had a mixed weekend throughout the British Grand Prix. For the sixth time in his career, Mercedes-AMG driver Lewis Hamilton won the race with teammate Valtteri Bottas taking second place. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc came home in third position and was the only Ferrari to score points as Sebastian Vettel finished way back in 16th.

In the lead up to this year’s British Grand Prix, there were fears that this would be the final iteration of the race held at the famous circuit. However, bosses from Silverstone and Formula 1 secured a new deal after two years of negotiations late last week. Under the new deal, Silverstone will continue to host the British Grand Prix until at least 2024 and it is possible that a London street race could be added to the F1 calendar at some stage.

Ferrari will hope to have a better showing at next year’s event and hopefully, won’t turn up at the track with any people hiding in its trucks.
