May 10 (GMM) After the espionage saga of 2007, a new colleague of Nigel Stepney has offered a more flattering portrayal of the alleged Ferrari 'spy'.
Stepney was sacked by Ferrari amid accusations of industrial espionage and even sabotage, and he has since switched to the FIA GT competitor Gigawave to be their 'director of race technologies'.GT racer Philipp Peter, in Turkey to commentate for Swiss television, says he only has good things to say about Stepney since they have been working together."He is very open and accessible," Peter, a 39-year-old Austrian, tells the Swiss publication Motorsport Aktuell."His wife and mine get along very well," he said, adding that Stepney's experience has also been an asset to the racing outfit."He is a really good guy and on a personal level I like him very much," Peter added.
