Hesketh attacks tobacco policies
Hesketh said that the ban will force races out of Europe to the Far East and teams will quickly realize that it is cheaper to relocate to that region. "Fifty thousand jobs are at stake," he said, "but I get the feeling that people will only discover what they have lost when it's gone."
The European Union is proposing to ban tobacco advertising entirely from October 1, 2006 although it will take some years before the idea becomes law.
