The 'spygate' scandal has never just been about Ferrari and McLaren, although they remain the central players in the drawn-out saga, and a fourth outfit - Renault - could be about to be dragged into the argument.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, McLaren boss Ron Dennis has information about potential transgressions by the Enstone team that could see an immediate expulsion' from the world championship, and could bring the details to light at Thursday's World Motor Sport Council hearing in retribution for what he sees as unnecessary involvement in the spy row by Reanult boss Flavio Briatore. The report claims that Briatore was a regular visit to the McLaren motorhome at Monza, and that the conversation was not about Fernando Alonso....

Similarly, the story claims that Dennis will also arrive in Paris armed with a file listing illegal aspects of Ferrari's assault on the 2007 world championship, suggesting that the war of words between Formula One's two giants is likely to run and run unless the FIA can find a way of solving the situation to everyone's liking. Even that is unlikely, however, with Ferrari team boss Jean Todt having already declared that he is prepared to take the matter to the civil courts in the UK if McLaren is 'let off' again.
