Ferrari's German driver Sebastian Vettel walks in the sunshine in the paddock at Silverstone motor racing circuit in Silverstone, central England, on July 11, 2019 ahead of the British Formula One Grand Prix. Ferrari's Formula One team found two migrants hiding in a lorry

Silverstone (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Ferrari’s Formula One team found more than it expected when it opened a transporter ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix.

The vehicle, a lorry used to ship team spares and supplies, had passed through Calais and used a cross-channel ferry en route to the Silverstone circuit.

When the doors were opened, the team found two illegal immigrants sheltering in the lorry.

“It was not a Ferrari transporter and it had no branding,” said a team spokesperson on Thursday.

“When they were found, the team telephoned the police and they took care of them.”
