Who is F1's bad boy?
FRENCH police recently arrested seven people in the Dragiugnan area of Provence and charged them with supplying cocaine to the jet set in St. Tropez and along the French Riviera. According to French newspaper reports one of those arrested was a fashion model who said that she had supplied the drug to a Formula 1 driver - among other celebrities. No names were given but the allegations were confirmed by Agence France Presse, which cited sources within the French judiciary. The clients of the drug ring are not, however, involved in the investigation at this stage.
Many of the top F1 drivers live in Monaco and spend time in the St. Tropez area and rumors in Europe suggest that the allegations could be linked to one of the top F1 stars.
