Schumacher's new team mate
Rocancourt went to Canada after being arrested in East Hampton, Long Island, where it was claimed he conned rich victims out of $1m by pretending to be a member of the Rockefeller Family. After fleeing to Canada he went to the ski resort of Whistler and pretended to be an F1 driver and got loans out of a victim by promising to buy a massive house in the area.
The Canadian judge said she was not convinced that Rocancourt had turned his back on crime but he says he now wants to go straight and write an autobiography... One presumes this will include details of his sparkling racing career.
