A man who ran across the track during practice for the Chinese Grand Prix has been arrested.

He crossed the main straight shortly before a car, climbed the fence and ran into the pits before trying to enter Ferrari's garage.

He is reported to have said he wanted to try a car, before being apprehended by security and handed to police.

Formula 1 bosses will investigate how the tight security measures, which are imposed at all races, were breached.

A Ferrari spokesperson said the man headed straight for the team's garage, but did not make it inside after he was stopped on the threshold by two mechanics. He was then handed over to security and then the police.
