Motorcyclist seriously injured in fan attack at British Grand Prix

The England police are investigating an incident on a Formula One racetrack where a driver was attacked while driving his bike.

The incident is alleged to have happened in Milton Keynes on Wednesday, the same day that star driver Lewis Hamilton crashed in the British Grand Prix.

And a statement from the Metropolitan Police described the incident as “serious” and said that it was assessed as a criminal assault with force likely to cause grievous bodily harm.

The investigation is understood to relate to a member of the public who reported seeing a motorcyclist being hit by another vehicle.

The person who made the report is understood to have chased the driver of the car that caused the crash, which was then involved in a collision with another car.

Police said the motorcyclist fell off the bike and received “numerous injuries”, and it is believed that he was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital for treatment.

The person who reported the incident was then detained by police.

Mercedes driver Hamilton was called to a stewards’ decision to restrict his pace after a collision with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton finished second at Silverstone to Vettel after starting from pole position, while Vettel finished in the lead.

Hamilton received a five-second drive-through penalty for the collision.

Police said anyone with information is asked to contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org
