Facebook user Viv Smith posted a photo in a closed Formula 1 interest group on Sunday, showing a couple standing on the race track. The post read: "3am in the morning. Bribed the security guard to let us onto the track. He not only agreed, he took the photo. Non F1 fans won't understand this, but most of us will." Smith later retracted his claims, saying there was "no bribery, no corruption, no nothing". The couple was on the track when the gates were open, and had merely asked the guard to help take a photo of them, he wrote.
