Nigel has, through his attorneys, issue a statement in which he welcomes the FIA’s backing off of the attempt to ban him from motorsport.
But he is critical that it took this long. He also maintains that the FIA only took one side of the story. Although he admits to sharing limited information with Mike Coughlan, he still remains adamant that he did not proffer the 780-page document in question.
“Frankly, I should have known better,” Stepney was quoted as saying. “But it sure as hell wasn’t the 780-page dossier the FIA saw, and which I’ve just been shown for the first time by the Italian authorities.”
So where, exactly, did Mike Coughlan get a 780-page how-to-build-a-Ferrari manual at?
