Mercedes GP sues F1 engineer for espionage ahead of move to Ferrari

Reigning Formula 1 World champion Mercedes on Tuesday confirmed that, reports it is suing a F1 engineer.

The Bloomberg news agency claimed the engineer Benjamin Hoyle, working for the German marque’s F1 engine facility, took documents and data as he prepared to move to Ferrari.

Hoyle, who intends to join Ferrari following December, saved a 2015 Hungarian GP race report, engine data and code to decrypt race data, the report said.

Illegal advantage

A filing, echoing an earlier espionage scandal in F1 involving McLaren and Ferrari, reportedly reads: “Mr Hoyle and potentially Ferrari have gained an unlawful advantage.”

Mercedes is seeking to stop Hoyle’s move to Ferrari or any other team.

Mercedes confirmed: “Legal action is underway involving Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains Ltd and an employee.

“The company has taken the appropriate legal steps to protect its intellectual property.”
