The much-anticipated 'tell-all' tale of life at Ferrari at the height of the recent Formula One espionage row may never be fully known, following the decision to pull Nigel Stepney's autobiography from publication.

Heralded as the inside story, the book - tentatively titled Red Mist - was to have hit the shelves early next year, but its prospective publisher - also called Red Mist - has since decided not to go ahead with the venture, but refused to give any reason for the turnaround.

The book had been expected to lift the lid on the spy scandal in which Stepney was implicated along with McLaren designer Mike Coughlan, as well as chronicling the Briton's rise through the ranks from humble mechanic on the UK national scene to heading up raceday operations at the most famous team in Formula One.

Stepney is expected to now try to find an alternative outlet for his memoirs.
