Stepney is not joining Aston Martin!
Nigel Stepney is not joining either Aston Martin or Aston Martin Racing. The former Ferrari team coordinator has been reported to be working for Aston Martin by the Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport and has been picked up by other news sources, which have not checked the story.
It is still possible that Stepney is working for one of the customer teams that use Aston Martin machinery in sports car racing but thus far we have not been able to find one that fits the bill.
Thus any conspiracy theories linking Stepney with Aston Martin, with Prodrive and McLaren should be treated with care.
