Never being one to let professional basketball get all the bad press, it appears as though two of the three former Ferrari employees suspected of industrial espionage, for stealing information from Ferrari which was then used by Toyota's Formula One program, will face charges and be tried in an Italian court. The two men are accused of accessing computers without authorization and passing on confidential files and information. Toyota, has denied they knew anything of espionage or that any stolen files or information was used in the design of their Formula One challenger. All this despite the fact that one of the accused worked for their F1 program, and even helped to produce what was essentially a carbon copy of Ferrari's all-conquering F2002 Formula One car. I'm sure Toyota will be watching this case closely so as to avoid getting another black-eye on the world motorsport scene.
