McLaren-Mercedes have promised that they will continue to 'co-operate fully' with the FIA following news that new evidence has come to light in the on-going spy row between the Woking-based team and the Scuderia.

Although the statement said little else, other than to acknowledge that the matter has now been referred back to the World Motor Sport Council and that the Court of Appeal hearing has been withdrawn, it could spell bad news for Ron Dennis' team, which may now face some sort of punishment, if the original ruling is changed.

The full statement from McLaren read:

"McLaren Racing has been made aware that new evidence has been presented to the FIA as part of their on-going investigation.

"As a result we have been informed that the Court of Appeal Hearing scheduled for the 13th September in Paris will now comprise a meeting of the WMSC.

"McLaren will continue to co-operate fully with the FIA [Formula 1's governing body]."
