Formula One personnel have items taken at gunpoint in Brazil

NEW FORMULA One world champion Lewis Hamilton has asked for prayers after personnel from his Mercedes team were robbed at gunpoint in Sao Paulo yesterday (November 10). Hamilton says he was "upset" by news as he prepared for Sunday's Grand Prix.

The BBC reported that a van of Mercedes workers was held up on the road away from the Interlagos track. No-one was hurt in the incident.

Hamilton said: "Gun shots fired, gun held at one's head. This is so upsetting to hear. It happens every single year here. F1 and the teams need to do more. No excuse."

Hamilton added: "Please say a prayer for my guys, who are here as professionals today even if shaken."

A Mercedes spokesman said: "Valuables were stolen but most importantly everybody is safe and uninjured."
