Sauber Motorsport engineers held up in robbery, but unhurt So as to make sure that everybody is in possession of the true facts. Three Sauber Motorsport engineers were leaving the paddock on Saturday night in a mini van at around 8 pm. The attack happened at the traffic lights near the fuel station, not far from gate 7. Nobody was injured. The mini van had stopped at the red light in the right hand lane. Five bandits went to the van, one of them carrying a machine gun. After they had been threatened with the gun, the engineer sitting in the passenger seat opened the car's door and the bandits took the two back packs which he had stored by his feet. One back pack was almost empty, but the other one contained a mobile phone, passport and other personal belongings. The team reported the incident to the police. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With all the new venues, is it going to be more dangerous for the drivers off the track than on it???

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
