Read about this the other day. I have to say, impressive work by the thieves...

Pretty heartbreaking for Red Bull. The only real tangible showings of their success taken away from them.

VERY Strange.

Has never happened before in F-1 and probably will never happen again.

The good thing is that all of these items are recent.

They can be easily replicated should Interpol fail to get them back, at which point, the originals would have little value.

I read somewhere that all the stolen trophies were replicas.

I doubt that original or replica they have little resale value so they will probably be broken up and sold for scrap Sad Some silly thief thought that they were really silver and gold!

Not all, some of it.

It's really silly, they can't sell it away and it has no meaning to them. Why steal?

Black market? I'm sure some mafioso would love it on his mantelpiece.

Horner said it was done for the silver. Supposedly, the price of silver is quite high right now.

I'd guess those are the replicas - which would confirm Horner's theory.
