No police reports filed over Austria GP incidents

Police are in the dark over an apparent series of incidents that occurred trackside at the Austrian GP on Sunday. Dutch GP boss Jan Lammers said he will not be tolerating any similar behaviour when Zandvoort welcomes Formula 1 in September. However, local Austrian police spokesperson Christoph Grill said he had nothing in particular to report. “With over 300,000 visitors, it was surprisingly quiet,” he said. “We cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of all visitors,” said Erich Wolf, boss of the Red Bull Ring. He said security staff were told to be on high alert for race-day on Sunday, but police spokesman Grill told APA news agency that not a single official report had been filed. Dutch GP boss Lammers said he is keenly interested in the outcome of any investigation by Formula 1 authorities. “There were 60,000 Dutch fans, so you wonder how many were misbehaving,” he said.
