As reported earlier today by the Italian branch of Motorsport Network, a number of illegal immigrants were found in the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 transport lorry as it arrived at Silverstone for the 2019 British Grand Prix.
It is believed the illegal immigrants boarded the Ferrari lorry during a stop at Calais as the team travelled to the circuit for the next round of the 2019 Formula One season. The staff and members if the Maranello team only noticed the extra passengers when the Italian side started to unload the trailer at the Silverstone circuit yesterday. Calais has been struggling for some time to manage refugees trying to pass into Britain.
However, this inicedent is not new to the world of Formula 1. A few years ago, Formula One official tyre supplier Pirelli had a similar incident during transport.
