F1: Lewis Hamilton And Other Stars To Have Police Escorts At Brazilian Grand Prix

F1: Lewis Hamilton And Other Stars To Have Police Escorts At Brazilian Grand Prix
Formula One teams will employ police escorts at this week's Brazilian Grand Prix.
 Staff from Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team and Williams - both caught up in the multiple security incidents that overshadowed last year's Sao Paulo race - as well as McLaren, are among those who are set to rely on the support of local law enforcers travelling to and from the Interlagos circuit.

As well as using police protection, some of the teams will hire specialised drivers for the week, rather than regular staff driving as is the protocol for much of the season.

The move comes after terrifying security breaches overshadowed last year's race at Interlagos Red Bull, the Milton-Keynes based team, will also liaise with a security contact in Sao Paulo upon their arrival and departure at the circuit throughout the race weekend.

F1's teams, the majority of which are based in the UK, have increased their own security after Mercedes, Williams, tyre supplier Pirelli, and the sport's governing body, the FIA, were all targeted by gun-wielding gangs last year.

 Mercedes' staff had valuables and passports stolen when several masked assailants held up their minibus as they left the track.

Hamilton said one team member had a gun held to his head in the terrifying ordeal.

F1 bosses faced severe criticism for the worrying security lapses and were ordered by the FIA to launch an extensive investigation into the incidents.
