Spanish publication El Periodico reports that Vettel was robbed early on Monday morning – and the 34-year-old then chased the thieves.

The report adds that Vettel left his car window open outside his hotel, which led to thieves snatching his bag. It is understood that Vettel had his documentation and AirPods in his backpack.

Vettel was able to locate his headphones using his iPhone’s GPS, which allowed him to trace his belongings to Barcelona’s El Raval district.

It is claimed that he found his Apple headphones abandoned in a store, however, there was no sign of his backpack or documentation.

Local media claim, according to The Sun, that police opened an investigation after Vettel reported the crime.

It is believed that the documentation was the only valuable item lost by Vettel.

The incident capped a disappointing weekend for Vettel, who only managed to qualify 16th for Sunday’s race after crashing out in Q1.

Vettel managed to move back to 11th in a turbulent race, which saw defending champion Max Verstappen win after Charles Leclerc’s engine problem.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton suffered a first-lap puncture, which dropped him to 19th. The seven-time champion came back strong to finish fifth, behind Carlos Sainz, George Russell, Sergio Perez and Verstappen.
