The divorce of Stepney & Ferrari

24 June 2007

Nigel Stepney has told the Sunday Times that he’s done nothing wrong and the allegations levelled at him are part of a “dirty tricks campaign”.

Lest we forget, Ferrari have lodged “an official complaint about his behaviour” to the relevant Italian authorities.

This story confused and surprised me when I first read it (Stepney’s been with the Scuderia since 1992) but it now seems inevitable that the relationship between Ferrari and Stepney is beyond repair. Unless the ‘dirty tricks’ quip relates to another team? Who knows.

The prospect of turning around Honda’s dire season must seem ever more attractive…

UPDATE: Ferrari have dismissed Nigel Stepney.
