McLaren staff visited by Italian investigators

McLaren staff visited by Italian investigators
McLaren executives were questioned by Italian investigators in Britain on Tuesday as part an ongoing legal enquiry into last year’s ‘spy scandal’ affair. Accompanied by British police, the officials visited both the executives’ homes and McLaren’s Woking factory.

McLaren were fined $100 million and stripped of their 2007 constructors’ points after they were deemed to have benefitted from the possession of confidential Ferrari data. Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has since drawn a line under the matter, but legal proceedings started by Italian magistrates are continuing.

“McLaren Racing has today continued its co-operation with enquiries instigated by the Modena Magistrate,” said the team in a statement.

“The Surrey Police accompanied Italian investigators to the homes of a number of McLaren executives as part of their ongoing investigation. A similar process has been performed at the McLaren Technology Centre.

“The police are completely satisfied with the co-operation they have received. These actions are part of a normal judicial process in connection with the ongoing investigation, and are supported by McLaren Racing.”

The Modena magistrate, Giuseppe Tibis, has already questioned McLaren test driver Pedro de la Rosa and former team mate Fernando Alonso over the affair.

McLaren dismiss Coughlan

McLaren dismiss Coughlan
Eurosport - Fri, 14 Mar 14:47:00 2008
McLaren have finally dismissed chief designer Mike Coughlan, the man at the centre of the spy controversy that cost them $100 million and last year's Formula One title.

The team confirmed at the Australian Grand Prix on Friday that the Briton, who triggered the scandal when a 780 page dossier of Ferrari technical information was found at his home, was no longer an employee.

The controversy broke last July, when Coughlan was suspended by McLaren.

However he had remained on the staff of the Mercedes-powered team due to legal reasons.

Ferrari sacked Nigel Stepney, the British engineer accused of passing the information to Coughlan, in July.

Both men face continuing legal action in Italy.
