Formula One drivers have doped - expert

Sanson is quoted as claiming Formula One drivers have also used performance-enhancing drugs.

Aug.12 (GMM) Even Formula One is not immune to doping, according to a French expert.

From 2003 to 2005, Marc Sanson was head of the conseil de prevention et de lutte contre le dopage, or the French anti-doping council.

Recently, the French senate revealed an explosive report about doping, with particular attention to the troubled world of cycling.

But according to Italian media reports, the senate also paid attention to other sports, including the use of beta-blockers in golf.

And Sanson is quoted as claiming Formula One drivers have also used performance-enhancing drugs.

"For many years," he said, "drivers have used tacrine, a product used in the treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer's, in order to remember the circuits more easily."
