The motorsport governing body, FIA, began its investigation into McLaren's 2008 challenger and this as part of the World Motor Sport Council's decision in the espionage case. Investigators of the governing body visited the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking in the last couple of days, where they held a thorough examination on the premises and took with them data for further analysis.
FIA president Max Mosley last week revealed to the BBC: "The investigation will be thorough. it will use outside experts and we will do everything we possibly can to make sure that either of the McLarens has no element of Ferrari intellectual property in it. If it does, we will then have to consider taking some sort of action."
