Pirelli and McLaren have cancelled a Formula One tyre test scheduled for the Brazilian Grand Prix circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday after teams were targeted by armed robbers in Sao Paulo at the weekend.

Sunday’s attack came after armed robbers held up members of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team as they left the circuit on Friday night. Hamilton said shots were fired and one team member had a gun held to his head.

The Williams and Sauber team reported other incidents while a car used by officials from the sport’s governing body was also targeted.
