Luca Cordero di MontezemoloLuca Cordero di Montezemolo, Ferrari President, invited the British photocopy shop employee who helped uncover the McLaren espionage scandal to Italy to thank him. “If it had not been for that photocopy man we would not have known anything about this story,” di Montezemolo told reporters.

“That’s why we have invited him to the Mugello race track and will invite him to our factory.” The anonymous employee tipped off Ferrari that somebody had copied 780 pages of their technical data in June. The dossier was found at the home of McLaren’s former chief designer Mike Coughlan and the scandal eventually cost his team the constructors’ title and a $100-million fine.
