Pirelli cancel F1 tyre test in Brazil after attacks

Sao Paulo violence will keep Massa away from home

The Woking outfit were due to test for Pirelli's 2018 tyres on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Sao Paulo circuit, where British teenager Lando Norris and Stoffel Vandoorne were due to run for the team, but security breaches around the venue have led to the running being cancelled.

Pirelli tweeted Monday that it has canceled the two tests it had scheduled for this week at Interlagos, following an attack on the tire manufacturer's van near the circuit Sunday.

Pirelli added: 'Following a robbery attempt, neutralised by Pirelli security, on a Pirelli van at the Interlagos circuit last Sunday - after a weekend where similar episodes occurred with other teams - it has been made a decision to cancel the tyre test planned on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 on the Brazilian circuit with Team McLaren.

Speaking after Friday's robbery, which saw team members robbed of money, jewellery, phones and passports after one crew member had a gun held to his head, Lewis Hamilton voiced his concern.

Thieves also attempted to stop vehicles belonging to Pirelli, Sauber, Williams and the FIA, which has forced Pirelli to call off the test.

Khanna, being one of the underrated actors, his one-liners have been quite appreciated by the fans. The Delhi Health Department believes that the poster promotes smoking among youth.

This is not the first time such terrifying incidents have occurred at a Brazil Grand Prix race weekend, and with the attacks becoming more commonplace year on year, it is questionable as to whether Interlagos can still ensure the safety of those that attend, leaving its future on the F1 calendar hanging precariously in the balance.

"We are extremely disappointed with the events of the last week", an F1 spokesperson told Sky Sports News.

Massa said: "It is a great sadness, not only for people who came and were there, but also for those who hear this and are Brazilian".

'The frustrating thing is I have been in F1 for 10 years and every year that has happened to someone in the paddock. And it continues to happen. It's an issue I'm sure the government here are fighting, but I think maybe on this weekend, there are protocols that should be put in place to help, like for example when we go to Mexico, which weren't there for these guys. And I think it should be for the whole paddock. That's partly Formula 1's responsibility but generally people at the top need to take action to keep everyone safe.
