F1 cars `used to smuggle cocaine'

FORMULA One authorities last night refused to comment on allegations that Grand Prix cars were being used to smuggle cocaine around the world.

A British newspaper yesterday claimed that customs officials were investigating allegations of a link between F1 and cocaine smuggling.

Quoting detectives and customs sources, the newspaper said customs officers were tipped off by an informant from the motor racing world 18 months ago and recently began monitoring the movement of F1 personnel and equipment in and out of Dover.
