I read about this too. Apparently this was also a promotion for the movie Ocean's 12 where they pull off a diamond heist. I guess someone might have done their own heist.

I can tell you first hand there is way too much money in F1. When I went to the Benetton F1 factory in 1995 and returned in 1996, their budget to field two F1 cars during that time was well over $100 Million. I have also visited the Williams F1 factory and the old Tyrrell F1 Factory. I was amazed at what Tyrrel accomplished with so little compared to the big boys of F1.

The diamond was only worth $200k, they did more damage than that just by starting the engine. I just think that it was stupid because the diamond was invisibly small. What was the point?
Invisibly small?? Man the elise must be an exotic if the people on this list think a 108 carat diamond is small! ;)
