Fuel espionage problems

WE understand that one of the fuel companies involved in Formula 1 ran into trouble at the recent LuxembourgÊGrandÊPrix when its representatives were caught siphoning fuel from an oil can belonging to a rival team. The incident has resulted in increased security measures for fuel drums not only to stop rival oil companies finding out one another's formulae but also to avoid the possibility of illegal substances being introduced into the fuel of a rival team.

It is not the first time such things have happened in F1.
