APRIL 8, 1996
Break-in at McLaren
This sort of espionage is not new in F1. A couple of years ago two Renault V10 engines were stolen from separate motor shows in France and never traced, and there are often suggestions that information is moved from one team to another in exchange for money.
Shell also reported the theft of some of its F1 fuel, but this was found in the possession of a local, who was pouring it into his road car.
