“Sheer lunacy.”

That’s how Sky Sports F1 commentator David Croft described the nutcase who took to the tracks at the Singapore F1 Grand Prix on Sunday (20 Sept).

The invader has been identified as a 27-year-old British man.

His irresponsible behaviour caused the race to be disrupted.

Race leader Sebastian Vettel first spotted the man and radioed in the message to his team.

Thereafter, a safety car was deployed before the wandering spectator slipped away through a gap in the barriers.

CCTV footage shows the man climbing onto the circuit over the right-hand barrier and walking across the track.

He continued down on the inside towards Turn 13, and after a short pause, went back through a gap in the fence.

The man has been arrested and police are investigating the incident.

But another incident which requires investigating involves the gaps in security.

Elsewhere along the grandstand, other gaps to the tracks were spotted, including this gate which was left open and unmanned.

Given prior incidents involving people storming the circuit, such as the British and German GPs in 2000 and 2003, and the threat of a terror attack on a large-scale event, you’d think that more would be done to prevent such brazen lapses.
