At the Interlagos circuit something very bizarre happened during the fourth round of the Sao Paulo Motor Racing Championship. During the race, a Mini Cooper accidentally ended up on the track.

During a race in the GT class at the Interlagos Formula 1 circuit, the Safety Car had to enter the track, because a Mini Cooper had joined the track, which was obviously not part of the race. The driver was aware of his mistake and was standing at the side of the road.

Journalist on the F1 circuit

The driver of the car turned out to be a journalist, who was reporting on a race on a nearby circuit. With one wrong turn, however, the journalist ended up on the Interlagos circuit and he did not know what was going on. As soon as it became clear, he went to the side of the road with his hazard lights on.

With the help of the safety car, the journalist was finally taken off the track and the race restarted, but it is remarkable that someone could accidentally enter the Interlagos circuit. The safety around this circuit has always been under a magnifying glass and will now have to be looked at again.
