Another chapter in the F1 spying saga November 13, 2007

Posted by FugareF1 in Monaco GP 2007, Uncategorized.

Renault refuted allegations of spying claiming there was no data from McLaren in their vehicles. McLaren has been the subject of a record $100 million fine this year, as well as being stripped of their constructors championship points, for being in possession of Ferrari information.

The team has been summoned to appear before the governing body in Monaco on the 6th of December 6 and claim that a former McLaren employee had been suspended shortly after joining Renault last year and as soon as it became apparent that he may have been in possession of sensitive McLaren technical data.

The employee, an engineer, has been named as Phil Mackereth and Renault were apparently made aware of the problem a matter of days before the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The team claim the information was “contained on old-style floppy discs and included copies of some McLaren engineering drawings and some technical spreadsheets” and was “without the knowledge of anyone in authority in the team.”
