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.”
