Sebastian Vettel, an Aston Martin Formula One racer, tried to track down a backpack taken by burglars in Barca on Monday by riding a bike through the city.
According to prominent Catalan magazine El Periodico, four-time Formula One former champion Vettel’s suitcase was robbed from somewhere outside his hotel after the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.
However, in an attempt to locate his taken luggage using his bike, Vettel used a Gps location from the AirPods earphones in the luggage to locate them using the Find my iPhone app.
Vettel pursued the signal on a scooter through the city, according to El Periodico, and was effective in reaching the trail.
Vettel was able to locate his earphones at the location on the map that had shown on his iPhone, but the backpack and the other goods that had been discovered inside it were missing, with the earphones most likely being dumped by the burglars to throw him off guard.
“A bag belonging to Sebastian Vettel was stolen in Barcelona this morning,” the team confirmed.
“He tried to find it by using his iPhone to track his earphones which were in his bag; but when he located his earphones he found them abandoned and was therefore unable to locate his stolen bag.”
Vettel informed the authorities, who initiated an inquiry into the situation.
