Last night a story appeared at Autosport.com – FIA requests BBC’s Whitmarsh tapes. Still in Melbourne Martin Whitmarsh had something to say about the Hamilton/Trulli incident to BBC TV and radio reporters. And that something somehow does not seem to mix well with his later statements regarding Dave Ryan’s actions. This part of the Autosport story it caught my eye:
The FIA has been alerted to the presence of these interviews and wants the BBC to supply any evidence that it believes will be helpful to its investigation.
I am not sure how exactly has FIA been alerted to the presence of these interviews. But first time I read anything about this was over at doctorvee’s blog and later at James Allen’s blog when he elaborated on doctorvee’s comment below one his earlier posts.
It is nice to think that observations of F1 blogger may have made it all the way to the top … And even if the alert came from some other source, still, good job doctorvee for picking that up probably before anybody else did !
