WMSC GraphicHighly sensitive Ferrari and McLaren information has been leaked onto the internet in an apparent blunder by the FIA.

The transcripts from the World Motor Sports Council hearings into the espionage affair in July and September were published yesterday.

They were supposed to censor sensitive information relevant to the teams involved but due to a blunder in the production of the documents that has not happened. Areas of text that are blacked out in the documents can be revealed by simply copying and pasting the text into a new document.
