New Delhi: Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel has traced the thieves who stole his AirPods using Apple’s Find My app. The four-time World Drivers’ Championship winner was robbed on Monday (May 23) morning as he went on a drive with his family after the Spanish Grand Prix 2022 that concluded on Sunday (May 22). The racer had stopped his Aston Martin at a hotel in Barcelona and got out of the car for a few minutes, during which the thieves had the opportunity to steal a bag from the car and fled with it.
However, despite being robbed, the former Formula 1 champion did not contact the authorities and, according to media reports, decided to take the matter into his own hands.
He took an electric scooter and decided to find his lost item with the Find My app using AirPods kept inside the bag. However, the police soon joined in his search and urged the driver to file an official complaint instead of looking for his bag.
Apple’s Find My app took him to a haberdashery, where he left his AirPods on display in a vase. According to media reports, the thieves have found out that someone is tracking them with AirPods installed inside the bag. At present, Vettel’s thieves are on the run. However, the police are reportedly working to identify the burglars on the basis of CCTV footage obtained from the hotel premises.
In addition to his AirPods, the bag also contained his driver’s license, passport and credit card. The driver has reportedly blocked his credit card to ensure that no fraudulent transactions take place. Read also: Snoring or coughing while sleeping?
