Ferrari trade secrets & FIA

Posted on 22/09/2007 · Posted in internet, trade secret

Few days ago FIA published on its official website the PDF files regarding 26th July and 13th Settember hearings of Ferrari vs. MacLaren case.

FIA did not realized that by converting these files in a Word format, the sentences censured by FIA become readable. This appears to be the last step of the spy-story regarding the infringement of Ferrari trade secrets. MacLaren in fact declared that it does not intend to appeal the FIA decision. Therefore MacLaren will be excluded from the 2007 constructors’ championship and fined US $ 100 million.

FIA World Motor Sport Council have assessed that the fact that the relevant documents passed from Ferrari to MacLaren suffices for infringing art. 151 (c) of International Sporting Code.
