More good publicity for the sport
According to reports in Germany Force India F1 driver Adrian Sutil has been the victim of an attempted blackmail. Sutil apparently went to the police when an unnamed man got hold of the hard drive of his old computer, which contained private information. He demanded $15,000 from Sutil in exchange for the hard drive but the police were able to track down the blackmailer. It is not clear what was on the computer that might have been worth that kind of money, but obviously there was something that the blackmailer felt would be embarrassing or damaging to Sutil.
