Hamilton to appear on behalf of McLaren

Lewis Hamilton is to appear as a witness for McLaren at today`s meeting of the WMSC.

I wonder why Alonso and De La Rosa are not?

Whatever the outcome of the meeting I cannot see this ending anywhere other than in the real courts.

I hope I am wrong.

Apparently De La Rosa is part of the McLaren contingent.

Information has just come to our attention that McLaren, who are currently in front of the world motorsport council in Paris, have been hit with some very incriminating evidence that suggests the MP4-22 has gained half a second a lap thanks to the stolen Ferrari data that is at the centre of the ‘spy affair’.

According to our sources, the FIA has scoured the 160 page file, the latest evidence in this affair, with a fine tooth and discovered certain revelations. There are approximately thirty e-mail exchanges between Alonso, de la Rosa and Paddy Lowe (director of engineering at McLaren), and they all contain confidential classified information from Ferrari. It is said that Lowe would have explored the new technical solutions that came from the information that was obtained by Mike Coughlan via Nigel Stepney. Meanwhile, even though de la Rosa and Alonso were well-informed, it appears that they did not take an active part in cementing the new explorations.

The exchange of electronic communication between the 3 men is also said to reveal that Ferrari’s race strategies were known at the beginning of year, in particular for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

It was also made available to automoto365.com that any car, for example the MP4-22, using the stolen data from Ferrari could gain approximately half a second a lap, a figure estimated by Ross Brawn (former technical director of the Scuderia), when questioned by the FIA due to his obvious knowledge on the matter, especially his knowledge of the technical and technological solutions that have most recently been used by Ferrari who have conferred with him in his sabbatical year. Hence Brawns attendance at this morning’s hearing…..
