The charges relate to the incident after Sunday’s race had been halted following driver Zhou Guanyu’s crash, when a group of people made it on to the circuit and sat down on the track.

All six will appear at Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday morning.

The force said a 43-year-old man also arrested in connection with the incident has been released under investigation pending further inquiries.
