Up to 20 of the 60 plus trophies stolen from Red Bull’s F1 headquarters have been recovered

Some of the 60-plus trophies snatched by thieves in a brazen ram-raid attack at Red Bull’s headquarters have been recovered.

The F1 squad’s principal Christian Horner said that some of the trophies were found tossed in a lake and had been damaged.

“It’s good news that some of our trophies have been found and thanks to the police for all their help so far,” Horner said.

“The fact that some of the trophies were discarded in a lake and damaged shows how senseless this crime was.

“While the trophies mean an enormous amount to the team, their intrinsic value is low – and the extent of the damage that was caused to the factory by the offenders during the break-in was significant

“Hopefully we can get the trophies back to our factory where they belong and get replicas made of those that we can’t. Thanks to everyone involved for their help so far.”

A group of six men used what was believed to be a Mercedes four-wheel-drive to force open the main doors at the front entrance of the Milton Keynes factory earlier this month.

The recovered trophies, believed to be around 20, were located at Horseshoe Lake near Sandhurst.

Members of the public with any information about the robbery are urged to contact Det Con Oakman through the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre.
