Tomas Enge: Drugs boost

The Monza paddock was buzzing after the revelation that F3000 front-runner and Prost substitute last season, Tomas Enge, had tested positive for banned drugs. Arden Team principal Christian Horner held a press conference at Monza this afternoon.

Enge had a sample taken last month at the Hungaroring and was positive for a banned drug, the second sample (taken at the same time) is waiting to be tested as soon as Enge appeals.

Horner said this afternoon that Enge is "insistent that he did not knowingly take any illegal substance or drug and is completely shocked and surprised to have tested positive".

Asked whether the substance was cannabis, Horner simply said that "the drug" was in no way performance enhancing."

The World Council will consider the results of the tests on October 1.
