Spygate mechanic Nigel Stepney killed in crash
You may recall his name from the Spygate affair that erupted between Ferrari and McLaren in 2007. The industrial-espionage controversy involved Stepney and McLaren engineer Mike Coughlan, who were accused (and, in Stepney's case, convicted) of illegally trading in secrets pertaining to their respective teams' vehicle designs. Coughlan apologized and moved to Williams, but while Stepney was sentenced to 20 months in prison, he never served any time behind bars. Stepney left F1 and moved to sports car racing, working for the JRM team that fields the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 in various racing series.
