More than 60 trophies won by Red Bull were stolen from the F1 team's factory late on Friday night. Team boss Christian Horner confirmed that a vehicle broke through the front entrance of the quadruple world champion's Milton Keynes headquarters, causing "significant damage".

"Beyond the aggressive nature of this break in, we are perplexed why anyone would take these trophies," he said on Saturday.

Horner said that while the value of the trophies is "extraordinarily high" to the team because they were earned through success, "their intrinsic value is low".

Police confirmed that about six men wearing dark clothing used two cars - a silver 4x4 and a dark Mercedes estate - for the robbery but did not physically harm the night staff.

"We would like to appeal to anyone who knows any information on the whereabouts of these trophies or the offenders involved to contact Thames Valley Police," Horner concluded.
