More info, An outside source told ferrari about info passed to Mclaren

Code: Select all

Ferrari says a source outside Formula 1 notified the team about the documents leaked to McLaren.

The Italian outfit has also confirmed that the English police were not involved in the search of a McLaren staff member's house earlier this week.

McLaren suspended a senior employee, believed to be chief designer Mike Coughlan, on Tuesday after confidential documents belonging to Ferrari were found at his home.

Ferrari had instigated the action as part of its ongoing investigation into former engineer Nigel Stepney.

"Ferrari wishes to clarify that the English police have so far not been involved in investigating the theft of technical information," said a statement from the team.

"It was brought to Ferrari's attention by a third party outside Formula 1 racing within the last fortnight, that a senior member of the technical staff within the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team might be in possession of highly sensitive Ferrari information.

"Ferrari reviewed the evidence and consulted London lawyers towards the end of last week.

"Ferrari then made an urgent application to the High Court in London on 2 July for the court's assistance."

The team added that it would not release any further details regarding the controversy while the inquiries were ongoing.

Honda confirm approach by Stepney and Coughlan

Code: Select all

Honda have revealed that former Ferrari engineer Nigel Stepney and McLaren’s chief designer Mike Coughlan paid a joint visit to the team last month, but stressed that no confidential information was offered or received during the meeting.

It follows news earlier this week that Ferrari are pursuing a case against Stepney and an unnamed McLaren engineer over the alleged theft of technical information from the Italian team. McLaren have since suspended the staff member in question.

“Given the speculation surrounding the legal investigations at Ferrari and McLaren, the Honda Racing F1 Team would like to clarify that earlier this year Nigel Stepney, formerly of Scuderia Ferrari, requested a meeting with Nick Fry, Chief Executive Officer of the Honda Racing F1 Team,” said Honda in a statement released Friday.

“Nigel Stepney subsequently met in June of this year with Nick Fry and brought with him Mike Coughlan of McLaren, with a view to investigating job opportunities within the Honda Racing F1 Team.

“Honda would like to stress that at no point during this meeting was any confidential information offered or received. Nick Fry informed Jean Todt and Ron Dennis of the meeting and has offered to provide any information required by Ferrari and McLaren.”
