Ferrari for industrial espionage

McLaren has suspended a senior member of its technical staff after discovering that he received confidential information from a Ferrari employee earlier this year. The British squad said in a statement that the individual in question – who was not named – was being investigated by Ferrari for industrial espionage. The statement read: “McLaren became aware on 3rd July 2007 that a senior member of its technical organisation was the subject of a Ferrari investigation regarding the receipt of technical information. “The team has learnt that this individual had personally received a package of technical information from a Ferrari employee at the end of April. “Whilst McLaren has no involvement in the matter and condemns such actions it will fully co-operate with any investigation. “The individual has in the meanwhile been suspended by the company pending a full and proper investigation of the matter. “No further comment will be made.”
