‘Car sharing’ fight goes from bad to worse

Wed, 18 April 2007, 11:50

Red Bull is reportedly considering legal action against a former employee who leaked confidential car blueprints to its embittered rival Spyker.

The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport also reports that Red Bull, a main subject of the acrimonious and ongoing ‘car sharing’ row, is exploring possible action against Spyker, after the Dutch squad used the stolen blueprints in a stewards’ protest at the Malaysian grand prix.

The latter would presumably involve the police, and possible criminal charges; and if authorities decide that the evidence was obtained illegally, it could not be used in the pending arbitration case.

It is also claimed that Red Bull has identified the source of the leak; a team member who left the Milton-Keynes based squad shortly after March’s Australian grand prix.
