The FIA are taking legal action against the Sunday Times over an article concerning the McLaren-Ferrari espionage case, according to an article on Pitpass. The complaint appears to relate to an article written by Martin Brundle over the Italian Grand Prix weekend.
That article is still online but carries the notice ‘This article is subject to a legal complaint’. In it, Brundle compares the FIA’s pursuit of McLaren in September this year with Fernando Alonso’s controversial qualifying penalty at Monza last year and the banning of Michelin tyres from the 2003 Italian Grand Prix.
Due to the legal proceedings potentially concerning the Sunday Times article, please do not quote any portion of it in the comments boxes below.
