Brazilian GP: Security tightened after gunmen threaten Mercedes

Last Updated: 12/11/17 7:18am

Security at the Brazilian GP has been tightened in the wake of the armed robbery of Mercedes team members leaving the circuit on Friday night. Gunmen held up a minibus carrying Mercedes personnel and stole valuables, while a car carrying FIA officials was also threatened . No one was harmed in either incident.

The FIA issued a statement on Saturday night confirming an increased security presence from local police and have advised people to take all necessary precautions when travelling to and from the circuit on race day.

“The circuit has informed all of the event stakeholders that the Sao Paulo police force has taken additional measures after these regrettable incident,” read a statement. “Heavy police reinforcements will be on duty for the remainder of the event.” While Brazil is one of the sport’s most popular and vibrant races, incidents of F1 personnel being targeted on the roads outside the circuit are not uncommon.

Ted Kravitz gives his thoughts on Saturday’s qualifying session at the Brazilian Grand Prix

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who was not travelling in the vehicle that was targeted, said F1 collectively needed to do more to ensure all members of the paddock were able to travel safely.

“I was horrified to hear what had happened,” he said. “I’m very close with all the guys that got pulled aside and you can’t imagine what they were feeling or going through at the time.

“After that, the most frustrating thing is I’ve been in Formula 1 for 10 years and every single year that has happened to somebody in the paddock . And it continues to happen.

“I’m sure that’s an issue that the government here are fighting, but maybe on this weekend there are protocols that are put in place that help. “It should be for the whole paddock . That’s partly Formula 1’s responsibility but generally people at the top need to take action to keep everyone safe . It’s not good just the bosses having security and myself having security, everyone needs to be looked after.” The 2017 title race may be over, but the racing definitely isn’t !

Carnival NFL atmosphere at Wembley despite increased security

Amid the increased and stringent security measures at Wembley, NFL fans still enjoyed a wonderful carnival atmosphere with bars, streets and the tailgate all rammed under the baking autumnal sun before the Baltimore Ravens faced the Jacksonville Jaguars. Security has been tightened further at Wembley after the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, including one nine days ago at Parsons Green underground station . There was a strong and obvious security and police presence at the stadium ahead of the game, but it did not detract from the enjoyment of supporters. When walking out from Wembley station, supporters were greeted by numerous police officers and newly laid stone barriers had been stationed at the top of Wembley Way – cloaked in a rather fetching green-turf covering – while police vans blocked off either end of Engineers Way. The Baltimore Ravens’ band take a walk through the huge crowds here at Wembley . Not only do they have to hold on to their instruments, but also dodge the flying footballs which are peppering the air.

0:19 The league’s clear-bag policy was implemented with supporters holding their belongings in transparent plastic bags, with small purses permitted in the stadium . Ravens-Jaguars is the first of four NFL games to be held in London before the end of October, with one more at Wembley and two at Twickenham, the home of England’s rugby team.

“We have not been advised of any threats to our games or events,” read a statement from NFL UK. “We have been and will continue to work in close coordination with law enforcement and intelligence personnel in both countries, along with our teams, our security staffs and outside specialists to ensure the safety of our events. “We will constantly be reviewing the issue in the days and weeks leading up to our games. “We have played 17 regular-season games to date safely and successfully in the UK and look forward to four great games in London this season.”

Fans who had flocked to the game were also subject to being scanned with hand-held metal detectors, while police, sniffer dogs – with their handlers flown over from America — and security walked among the fans as they enjoyed the official tailgate party and various other sideshows laid on for the event. It was all part of the enhanced security operation implemented by the Football Association, who own and run Wembley, and they also recommended to supporters they should arrive as early as possible to avoid being held up by the searches and various security measures at Wembley. Huge queues at the Tailgate with bag searches and thorough security causing one almighty queue . Everyone in good spirits with all manner of shirts on display with Ravens and Patriots’ jerseys seemingly the most popular.

The staff themselves were reminded of their need to prioritise supporter security in a handbook handed to them when they arrived for work at Wembley . Called the ‘Teammate Playbook’, it includes a line saying: ‘I make safety a non-negotiable’. There was a wonderful atmosphere at Wembley and one Baltimore Ravens fan had travelled over to London for the first time to watch her team in action . She said she was loving her time in London, vowed she would be back as soon as possible and was appreciative of the security measures in place. The Maryland flag has made its way to London’s Wembley Stadium . More and more Ravens fans are filing into the stadium.
