Ferrari spy row will go to appeal

Ferrari spy row will go to appeal

Post by dj_tiesto on Wed Aug 01, 2007 6:50 am




FIA president Max Mosley said the move was because of "the importance of public confidence in the outcome".

Mosley was responding to a letter from the Italian motorsport authority the CSAI expressing its unease at the decision not to punish McLaren.

The CSAI wrote that Ferrari should be given the right to present a full case.

That had not been the case at last week's hearing of the FIA world motorsport council, it said, because the team had been present only as observers.


606: DEBATE
What do you think of this development?

McLaren are not impressed with the FIA's decision to look into the case again, with the team facing a renewed threat of a points deduction or even a ban from the championship if found guilty.

"We're not aware of any new information or arguments that have arisen since the meeting of the world motor sport council and therefore assume that these same materials will now be considered by the FIA international court of appeal," read a McLaren statement.

"Whilst this is both disappointing and time-consuming, McLaren are confident that the FIA international court of appeal will also exonerate McLaren.

"In the meanwhile, we continue to focus on our current world championship programme."

Ferrari welcomed the FIA's decision as "a sensible one".

A spokesman said: "The FIA has correctly noted that Ferrari, as the injured party, should be able to enjoy all the rights of a party in a trial and that was not the case in the audience of the world council."

After a board meeting on Wednesday, Ferrari added that they would "continue any necessary legal action, in the name of the company, in addition to those legal actions already underway, in every legal, civil, criminal, administrative and sporting jurisdiction, be it in Italy or abroad."

McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton leads the world championship by two points from team-mate Fernando Alonso going into this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, with Ferrari's Felipe Massa a further nine points behind.


Exclusion or withdrawal of points did not seem appropriate if it really was just a case of a rogue employee acquiring information for his won purposes

Max Mosley
FIA president
McLaren are 27 points ahead of Ferrari in the constructors' title chase.

The world council found McLaren guilty of possessing confidential Ferrari information, but said there was "insufficient evidence" that the team had used it to their benefit.

The row blew up when McLaren chief designer Mike Coughlan was found to have nearly 800 pages of Ferrari documents in his house.

Coughlan has since been suspended by McLaren.

Ferrari believe Coughlan received the documents from their now-sacked performance director Nigel Stepney, who says he is innocent.

The CSAI, echoing Ferrari's line, said McLaren had breached article 151c of the F1 sporting code "over several months, through several top team representatives".

Mosley responded that if the CSAI was right, "the situation would indeed be very serious".

Article 151c deals with "any fraudulent conduct, or any act prejudicial to the interests of any competition, or to the interests of motor sport generally".

But Mosley added: "McLaren's case was that, except for a tip-off in March and a drawing shown briefly to a colleague as a historical curiosity, no-one at McLaren knew of or had access to any of the information.

"According to McLaren, it was acquired privately by a disgruntled employee who intended to leave.

"They inferred he never used Ferrari's information to help McLaren because it was to be part of his private database as technical director for another team."

He admitted there were "a number of suspicious elements", but said the world council had considered all of them.

Mosley said the suspicions "did not amount to proof to the standard the council felt was necessary in order to reject [McLaren's] evidence... and convict the team of an offence so grave as in all probability to warrant exclusion from the championship.

"In the absence of unambiguous evidence that McLaren as a team had received and used the Ferrari information, the council was left with McLaren's responsibility for its employee.

"Exclusion or withdrawal of points did not seem appropriate if it really was just a case of a rogue employee acquiring information for his own purposes."

Ferrari have attacked the world council decision, saying there was "not even a sign of logic in this verdict".

Mosley added in the letter to the CSAI: "Your letter suggests that the outcome may have been different if the council had given Ferrari further opportunities to be heard beyond those that were in fact offered.

"Because of this and the importance of public confidence in the outcome, I will send this matter to the FIA court of appeal under article 23.1 of the FIA Statutes with a request that the court hear both Ferrari and McLaren and any other championship competitor who so requests.

"This will determine whether the decision of the WMSC was appropriate and, if not, substitute such other decision as may be just."

An FIA spokesman said the court would probably hear the case by the end of August.
