2007 F1 season
Highly 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.
They revealed Mike Coughlan’s salary at McLaren (£300-400K), Ferrari’s work on optimising weight distribution on the 2007 specification Bridgestone tyres, McLaren’s work on the same, Ferrari’s work on a rear braking system and more.
