Life Story & Timeline

2014

Stepney was killed on 2 May 2014 in a road traffic incident on the M20 motorway at Ashford, Kent, United Kingdom. The exact circumstances of his death have not been established, however. According to police, his vehicle was parked, and he appeared “to have [entered] the carriageway and was then [subsequently] in collision with an articulated goods vehicle”. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. A subsequent Coroner’s inquest recorded an open verdict.

2010

On 29 September 2010, Stepney was sentenced to 1 year 8 months in prison and handed a €600 fine for his part in the spy affair, after being found guilty of “sabotage, industrial espionage, sporting fraud and attempted serious injury”. The sentence was reportedly reduced after he entered a plea bargain. Stepney did not serve any time in prison.

2009

However, the restriction was lifted on 6 February 2009, with FIA President Max Mosley claiming that Stepney and Coughlan had only been “minor players” in the scandal. On 27 August 2010 Stepney was appointed team manager of the Sumo Power team competing in the FIA GT1 World Championship.

2008

On 22 January 2008, it was announced that Stepney had been recruited by Gigawave, a manufacturer of on-board racing car camera systems who are also fielding a team in the 2008 FIA GT Championship, as Director of Race Technologies.

On 7 March 2008, the FIA issued a statement urging teams and those holding FIA issued licences not to hire Nigel Stepney “Without conducting appropriate due diligence regarding his suitability for involvement in international motor sport”.

2007

At the 2000 Spanish Grand Prix, Stepney was injured during a pit stop for Michael Schumacher’s car. This occurred when the German was signalled to depart while Stepney was still detaching the fuel rig. He suffered badly damaged ligaments to his ankle. On 1 February 2007 it was reported on the Internet that Stepney was unhappy with Ferrari’s technical restructuring and that he wanted to leave the team, seeking a new challenge. Ferrari’s spokesman, Luca Colajanni, reported on Pitpass’ website that he had a contract until the end of the 2007 season and that he was therefore staying at Ferrari.

On 23 February 2007, Stepney was promoted to Head of the performance development, meaning that he would no longer have to attend races.

On 21 June 2007 it was reported that Stepney was the subject of a criminal inquiry by the Modena district attorney, initiated after Ferrari reportedly made a formal complaint. No reason for the investigation was given, with the specifics of the complaint not being released to the public. A Ferrari spokesman told Reuters “It is not related to any event; it is related to his behaviour.” Stepney was also accused of selling Ferrari parts to competing teams. He denied the accusations and claimed to be the victim of a “dirty tricks campaign”.

Upon his return from holiday in the Philippines on 5 July, Stepney was interrogated by the Italian police as part of the industrial espionage case. On 6 July, Honda F1 released a statement confirming that Stepney and Coughlan approached the team regarding “job opportunities” in June 2007. Since the revelation of Coughlan’s involvement in the affair McLaren provided a full set of drawings and development documents to the FIA, detailing all updates made to the team’s chassis since the incident occurred at the end of April.

RECOMMENDATION RE: NIGEL STEPNEY 07.03.2008
In its investigations of last year regarding the unauthorised use of intellectual property within Formula One, the FIA heard allegations that Mr. Nigel Stepney, then employed by Ferrari, had passed confidential Ferrari information to an employee of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. Mr. Stepney has admitted this allegation and apologised to the FIA, though he disputes the seriousness and extent of his involvement. As Stepney is not a licence-holder of the FIA, no formal action may be taken against him under the International Sporting Code (though the FIA is co-operating with the Italian police, who are investigating Mr. Stepney’s actions). As a matter of good order, the FIA recommends to its licensees that they do not professionally collaborate with Mr. Stepney without conducting appropriate due diligence regarding his suitability for involvement in international motor sport. This recommendation stands until 1 July 2009.
