Ferrari has apparently hired former Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Lord Stevens to look into how a secret dossier found its way to their main rivals, McLaren.

According to reports by British broadsheet newspaper The Daily Telegraph, Stevens and the intelligence agency he chairs, Quest, has been 'conducting inquiries into the affair'.

"I can confirm that Quest have been retained by Ferrari, as evidenced by mention of Quest in papers filed at the High Court," a spokesperson for Quest told the 'paper. "I am unable to confirm [however] the nature of Quest's engagement at this stage."

Stevens is a well known name in Britain, particularly with those who have an interest in football, as he - and Quest - was responsible for the 15-month inquiry into the transfer bungs scandal, which cost the Premier League, the UK's top soccer division, over ?1 million.

A spokesperson for the Ferrari meanwhile told BBC Sport Online that he 'did not know anything' about the Stevens reports in The Daily Telegraph.
