According to a Tweet from Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, several members of the title winning team have reportedly been held at gunpoint outside the Interlargos Grand Prix circuit. Taking to Twitter earlier today, newly crowned four time World Champion Lewis Hamilton confirmed that several members of his Mercedes team were held at gun point outside the Interlargos circuit on Friday night, with reports of shots fired and one member being held at gun point. Fortunately nobody was injured in the attack, however several items of value were reportedly stolen from the team, yet another incident at a Brazilian Grand Prix that is starting to becoming renowned for the high levels of crime against Formula One outfits in recent years, most notably the gunpoint hijacking of Jenson Button back in 2010. Hamilton took to Twitter to confirm the attack had taken place, and that nobody involved in the incident suffered anything more serious than shock at the attack. Thankfully all involved in the robbery would be unharmed in the incident, and it is thought all members of the team have returned to work at the circuit in time for this mornings third Free Practice and qualifying later in the day.
