Red Bull has recovered up to a third of the trophies stolen from its F1 headquarters in a ram-raid earlier this month. More than 60 trophies won on podiums around the world by the former quadruple world champions were taken by a group of masked men who inexplicably smashed through the glass frontage of the team's Milton Keynes headquarters.
Red Bull announced on Tuesday that "a number" of those trophies - believed to be around 20 - were recovered from a lake about an hour's drive from the factory after being spotted by a member of the public this week. "The fact that some of the trophies were discarded in a lake and damaged shows how senseless this crime was," said team boss Christian Horner
. "Hopefully we can get the trophies back to our factory where they belong and get replicas made of those that we can't." (GMM)
