Vettel's unusual search for his stolen bag hits a dead end

Sebastian Vettel was the victim of a robbery after the Spanish Grand Prix weekend and has been unable to retrieve all of his lost items.

Sebastian Vettel's search for a bag stolen from him following the Spanish Grand Prix has ended unsuccessfully. According to local reports, Vettel attempted to track the thieves on an electric scooter, having located his Apple AirPods - which were in the bag - through GPS. While Vettel managed to find his earphones, the bag - reportedly taken from his car - was nowhere to be seen. "He tried to find it by using his iPhone to track his earphones which were in his bag," explained an Aston Martin team spokesperson. "When he located his earphones he found them abandoned, and was therefore unable to locate his stolen bag."

Vettel not the first F1 driver to be robbed

Four-time World Champion Vettel is not the only F1 driver to have been robbed in recent times. Lando Norris was mugged when he attended the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium last July, with those involved taking his watch. Charles Leclerc also had a watch stolen in Italy earlier this year, after he had stopped to pose for photographs with fans.
