SILVERSTONE, England — Two migrant stowaways ended up being fast-tracked into the British Grand Prix paddock after clambering on board a truck belonging to a Ferrari Formula One team supplier that was waiting to enter Britain.
A team spokeswoman said the pair were discovered as the truck was unloaded at Silverstone on Wednesday. They were handed over to police.
The stowaways were believed to have boarded near the French port of Calais.
Humanitarian organizations estimate that several hundred migrants are living in the Calais area, all hoping to find a way to get to Britain.
