The FIA is looking to put an end to F1′s spy story after expressing its intention to cancel February’s meeting of the World Motor Sport Council. In a meeting last week, the WMSC didn’t clear McLaren’s 2008 car and deferred a decision to 14 February’s meeting of the WMSC.

However, this morning McLaren Mercedes apologized to FIA, WMSC and Ferrari, and accepted the Italian team’s data had penetrated deeper into their team than suspected at first. The FIA has responded to that saying president Max Mosley has asked the WMSC for permission to cancel February’s meeting and consider the matter closed.

“In the light of McLaren’s public apology and undertakings, the FIA President has asked the members of the World Motor Sport Council for their consent to cancel the hearing scheduled for 14 February 2008 and, in the interests of the sport, to consider this matter closed,” said the FIA in a statement.

The FIA also made public a copy of the report by the FIA Technical Department to the World Motor Sport Council.

An FIA spokesman said an answer from the WMSC should come some time next week.
