McLaren to seek British government help?
McLaren says that that it is going to contact the Home Office, the British ministry responsible for law and order, regarding concerns about how the Italian police are conducting their inquiries into the espionage affairs of last season. The team is upset at coverage in Italy which seems to have been created by the Italian authorities and is worried that the investigation is not being conduct in a suitable manner.
It remains to be seen whether Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, will get involved in the McLaren business.
McLaren was upset last summer when there were constant leaks to the media about what was going on in Italy and there is a suspicion that the magistrates in Modena could be using the high profile case to increase their own reputations. This was a suggestion that was often mentioned during the seemingly endless legal actions that followed the death of Ayrton Senna at Imola in 1994.
