Publisher withdraws Stepney book

Mon, 1 October 2007, 12:52

Just days after proudly announcing the news, a British publisher now says it will actually not publish disgraced former Ferrari employee Nigel Stepney’s explosive autobiography next year.

Red Mist Books said last week that the book would detail Stepney’s “own account of the Stepneygate saga” that rocked formula one this year.

But the publisher has now released a statement marked ‘important’ reading: “Please note! Red Mist Books has withdrawn Nigel Stepney’s autobiography from publication”.

It is not known if Ferrari, pressing ahead with legal action in Italy and England against Stepney, requested the book be withdrawn.
