Ferrari laughs at Red Bull's spying charge

By on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

May 25 (GMM) Ferrari has laughed at reports it could be in the middle of a new spying scandal.

After the Spanish grand prix, Helmut Marko accused the famous Italian team of secretly listening in on Red Bull's race strategies.

"We have noticed that Ferrari is doing some kind of espionage," the Austrian said.

"We called Mark (Webber) into the box relatively late, and yet they (Ferrari) managed to get Alonso in as well. They had been able to respond to us."

It is believed Marko's suspicions hardened when Red Bull issued fake commands for its drivers to pit in Barcelona, and Ferrari still moved to respond.

"We can only laugh at that," Ferrari spokesman Luca Colajanni is quoted as saying by German-language

"It is clear that everybody observes everybody else," he added.
