F1 British Grand Prix: Silverstone track invaders risked harm, court hears

Five people said to have invaded the track at the start of the F1 British Grand Prix posed a serious risk of harm to drivers and marshals, a court heard. Mr Jones told the court: “It is not in dispute that five of the defendants in this case – all of them save for David Baldwin – made it on to the racetrack and they did not have permission to be there.”. Footage recorded by Lewis Hamilton’s car passing protesters shortly before the track invasion was also shown to the court. “They will inevitably say that this was done as an act of protest and in order to bring publicity to the cause, and demand they make no new oil and gas licences,” Mr Jones said to the court. Covid losses mount in rural China: ‘There are just too many’.
