Vettel is claimed to left his car window open outside his hotel, with the crook taking advantage and pinching his bag.
The reports reveals the German had his documentation and AirPods in the backpack.
However, Vettel was able to pinpoint his headphones with the help of his iPhone – tracking their position using GPS.
The Aston Martin star hopped on his electric scooter and navigated the tricky El Raval area of Barcelona to trace his belongings.
Unfortunately for Vettel, he is claimed to have found his Apple headphones abandoned in a shop, but there was no sign of his backpack or documentation.
It’s thought the robbers realised they might be traceable, so ditched them to throw Vettel – and police – off the scent.
Local news outlets claim cops have opened an investigation after Vettel reported the crime.
It’s believed, documentation aside, Vettel had no valuables in his rucksack.
It capped off an ultimately disappointing weekend for the German.
Vettel only managed to qualify 16th for Sunday’s race after struggling in Q1.
However, he clawed his way back up to 11th during an action-packed race, which saw Max Verstappen win following Charles Leclerc’s engine issue.
Elsewhere, Lewis Hamilton suffered a first-lap puncture, dropping down to 19th, before firing back to finish well in the points in fifth.
The seven-time world champion finished behind Carlos Sainz, George Russell, Sergio Perez and Verstappen.
