F1 teams forced to stay in brothels

Formula One teams have been forced to stay in brothels due to a lack of hotel rooms at the Korean Grand Prix.

Hotels around the Yeongam track, which is some 350 miles away from South Korean capital Seoul, have been overwhelmed by demand.

And while drivers and team bosses have found normal rooms, many staff and pit crew have been forced into £150-a-night 'love hotels' where they have reported finding unsanitary conditions - and even piles of used condoms beneath the beds.

"One of the Sauber mechanics was asked if he also wanted a girl for the week," one F1 insider told The Sun.

"And one of the hospitality girls is convinced her room was 'let out' for a few hours while she was away."

The race was only given the green light two weeks ago after FIA race director Charlie Whiting completed a two-day inspection - although drivers including Jenson Button and Jarno Trulli have questioned its safety.

Red Bull star Sebastian Vettel praised the circuit, but joined in criticism of the lack of accommodation.

"The only thing they could probably finish in the future is the hotel situation for a lot of team members," said the German. Yahoo! Sports

please, 'love hotels' and brothels are wholly different things. yes, there is some crossover, but it's not the same. that's like calling a regular nightclub a swingers orgy.
