Formula 1 – Stepneygate – New Twist

It was quiet for quite some time, with the International Court of Appeal hearing planned for next week (September 13). Then all of a sudden we have 2 developments on the same day. First The Modena magistrate Giuseppe Tibis confirmed that there is a case against the former Ferrari engineer Nigel Stepney. There is supposed to reasonable proof that Stepney was involved in the Monaco white powder case. Then, later on on the same day, FIA came with announcement in the Stepney-Coughlan saga:

“Following receipt of new evidence, the World Motor Sport Council has been reconvened for a hearing in Paris on September 13.”

“The FIA President’s referral of the matter to the International Court of Appeal has been withdrawn.”

When asked about the new information, an FIA spokesman said the world body was “not in a position to make any comment at this stage.”

McLaren representatives were invited to attend this hearing.

This does not sound like good news for McLaren…
