McLaren responds to legal claims

McLaren has responded to stories that it has been charged with criminal offences in Italy by pointing out that although the team did receive notification of being investigated by the Modena prosecution service, it has not been charged with anything.

"We strongly suspect that the nature and timing of this wholly unnecessary contact - just before the start of qualifying - was to disrupt our preparation for this important session and Thursday's World Motor Sport Council hearing," the team said in a press statement. "McLaren is completely confident that were any proceedings of this type ever to be brought we would be completely exonerated."

The propaganda war continues.
