Sebastian Vettel chased thieves through the streets of Barcelona on a scooter in search of his stolen bag.
The four-time world champion was trying to track down possessions taken through his car window on Monday morning, following Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.

Having traced the signal, Vettel jumped on a scooter through the city until he successfully reached the correct point on the map.
But, although he found his headphones where his iPhone had indicated they were, the bag and the rest of its contents were nowhere to be found.
It is thought likely the thieves discarded the headphones to throw their pursuer off the scent.
