Just days after Red Bull was subject to a daring smash-and-grab raid, thieves have now targeted the Ferrari F1 factory in Maranello in an audacious overnight break-in.

Sources in Italy say the burglars were looking for trophies marking wins in races from the 2014 season. They were also targeting the valuable silverware that comes from scoring a top three finish in the drivers’ or constructors’ championships during the last year.

More worryingly, it’s believed the intruders’ main intention was to steal the blueprints for making a quick and successful Formula 1 car and to kidnap the person who unifies and leads the whole team to glory.

The thieves left empty handed.
