F1 ‘spygate’: Fifteen years on from the sporting scandal that had everything

Mosley was the president of the sport’s governing body, the FIA, whose job it was to mete out punishments for the offences in question; Dennis the boss of McLaren. But Mosley still had suspicions, and at a second hearing it was held that the information had reached others in the team. But Mosley, who died last year, said this was not the case. Dennis – believing the email story was therefore untrue – rang Mosley for a second time. As for McLaren, Dennis railed that the punishment was out of all proportion to the alleged ‘crime’, which he insisted the team were not guilty of anyway. Mosley denied he had said it at the time, insisting that the remarks were something Ecclestone had said to him about Dennis.
