Northamptonshire Police confirm charges of six protesters with track invasion in the first lap of the British Grand Prix » FirstSportz
British Grand Prix saw a protest on the very first lap after a red flag was pulled over Zhou’s horrific crash, which turned his cars upside down. The protesters saw their moment to get onto the track but were later caught by officers.
Northamptonshire Police have now confirmed and fined six people on the route, whose names have now been released. The police already had information for the protest from a reputable source and agreed to a peaceful demonstration.
The names of the following people emerged for the first round of harassment: David Baldwin, 46, of Stonesfield, Witney, Emily Brocklebank, 24, of Yeadon, Leeds, Alasdair Gibson, 21, of no fixed address, Louis McKechnie, 21, of London, Bethany Mogie, 40, from St Albans, and Joshua Smith, 28, from Manchester.

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel on the British Grand Prix protest
Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel are said to be very good friends, they have supported the word against the environment and are seen using the platform to spread the word themselves.
They urged the protester to lead the stand, but in a safer way, getting out on the track is life-threatening for everyone.
“I mean, I didn’t know what the protesters were for, so I just found out and said, the protesters, I love that people are fighting for the planet and we need more people like them,” Hamilton said.
Mercedes later clarified Hamilton’s statement: “Lewis supported their right to protest, but not the method they chose, which endangers their safety and that of others.”
The demonstrator is left in custody and has to pay a specific fine for the crime. Protesting for the right cause in a safer way will have the same effect on the world as in an unsafe way, and the police also support the former.
