Sebastian Vettel was robbed in Barcelona after the Spanish Grand Prix, with thieves making off with a bag belonging to the four-time world champion.

Vettel was able to use GPS tracking data from his AirPods to locate the bag, only to find the headphones had been taken out of the bag and abandoned.

An Aston Martin statement said: "A bag belonging to Sebastian Vettel was stolen in Barcelona this morning; he tried to find it by using his iPhone to track his earphones which were in his bag; but when he located his earphones he found them abandoned and was therefore unable to locate his stolen bag."

Vettel is the third F1 driver to be robbed in the past 10 months.

Lando Norris had a watch stolen during the riots at the Euro 2020 final last summer. Ferrari's Charles Leclerc had a $320,000 Richard Mille watch stolen from his wrist while posing for a photograph with fans last month.
