Mexico City - A member of Mercedes' Formula 1 race team was robbed at gunpoint ahead of the Mexican grand prix, according to the Sun newspaper.

The report said the team member was "shaken up" after he was targeted by thieves as a chauffeur drove him from the airport in Mexico City.

A Mercedes spokesman confirmed that the unnamed man's watch and wallet was stolen, prompting the team to take extra security measures for the rest of the weekend.

But the team member decided to keep working rather than return to the UK, the Sun added.
