Less than a day after Nigel Stepney's dismissal from the Ferrari team following allegations of sabotage and industrial espionage, the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team has suspended a member of its technical team, having learned that the employee 'received a package of technical information from a Ferrari employee at the end of April'.

The team issued the following statement this evening...

"McLaren became aware on 3 July 2007 that a senior member of its technical organisation was the subject of a Ferrari investigation regarding the receipt of technical information. The team has learnt that this individual had personally received a package of technical information from a Ferrari employee at the end of April.

"Whilst McLaren has no involvement in the matter and condemns such actions it will fully co-operate with any investigation. The individual has in the meanwhile been suspended by the company pending a full and proper investigation of the matter.

No further comment will be made."
