Ferrari has ‘proof’ against Stepney

A Ferrari spokesman insists that the case against British engineer Nigel Stepney will be proved.

The specialist publication Auto Motor und Sport quotes Luca Colajanni as revealing that the Maranello based team has in its possession “compelling proof” of 48-year-old Stepney’s illegal behaviour.

It emerges, however, that the internal and police investigation may not be about sabotage, despite reports of a mysterious ‘white powder’ found in the fuel tank of Felipe Massa’s car prior to Monaco as well as a major incident recently in the team’s wind tunnel.

In fact, the latest suggestion is that – following the widely reported case involving Toyota personnel – Ferrari suspects a new case of espionage, involving the selling of information and blueprints to rival teams.
