During a second Formula 1 practice on Friday night, the Bahrain International Circuit rescued a dog that fled the track, taking it to an animal rescue center.
After a long red flag following the crash of Alexander Alban in the second practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix on Friday, the session resumed for only 27 seconds, before another red flag was shown.
Drivers heading to -n-track were quicker to report that they saw a dog, which was soon picked up by a World Feed TV camera, showing it was running on the track at turn 1.
Before the final practice on Saturday morning, it was revealed that the dog had thanked the Bahrain Animal Rescue Center – aka BARC – for its help and had taken him to the Bahrain Society of Cruelty to Animals (BSPCA).

“Important Pappadet !! Remember our visitor to FP2? He has been found and is now in the wonderful care of BSPCA,” read a tweet from Truck.
“Checked by a vet and she’s doing well. Anyone got an idea for the name?”
Upon learning that a dog had landed on the track, seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton said: “I hope it’s not Roscoe!”, He brought his dog into most races.
Sebastian Vettel sang, “Who let the dogs? Who’s who!” After talking about dogs, and said: “If I knew dogs were allowed, I could bring mine!”

It marks the second race weekend in a row that a dog has been prevented from getting on-track during the season following a similar incident while qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix.
Last month, a cat also proved to be one of the most popular paddock members at Emola, after Trek later announced his name as Formulino and was the “King of Pads”.
Permission for animals to be in paddock is actually written in the F1’s game rules, which reads Article 22.17: “Animals, except those which may have been explicitly authorized by the FIA for use by security services, are prohibited on track Or in any viewer area. “
