F1 to take tough action against trophy-hunting spectators

After several spectators stole signage and other circuit property from the Red Bull Ring over the Austrian Grand Prix weekend, F1 is taking measures to ensure the same thing doesn't happen at the French Grand Prix.

Formula 1 is set to take tough action against spectators who remove any track signage or hoardings after this weekend's French Grand Prix. After the end of the Austrian GP two weeks ago, spectators climbed fences to enter the track, with several taking advertising hoardings and other circuit property as souvenirs. An F1 spokesperson confirmed to RacingNews365.com that cameras would be monitoring the crowds after the French Grand Prix, and that anyone caught taking circuit property would be dealt with by authorities and prosecuted.
