Fernando Alonso and Pedro De la RosaPedro de la Rosa, McLaren-Mercedes veteran test driver, has stated earlier today that the well known espionage case that hit F1 last year, despite having penalized the Woking-based team with a 100m dollar fine and the exclusion from 2007 Constructors Championship, hasn’t affected the atmosphere within the team. Although the email exchange between the Spaniard and Fernando Alonso was one of the main reasons that forced the FIA to penalize McLaren, de la Rosa says that hasn’t noticed any change in the attitude of other McLaren members.

“The atmosphere is still good. There is no side-effect. My role remains the same as last season. I have to thank the team for the support they gave me after the espionage story. They have always supported me and we have stayed together. That is something that some people might not have noticed, but I did.”

“Now I hardly ever send emails. I prefer much more to discuss things face to face! You always have to learn from things in life – even the bad ones,” he added.
