McLaren plan to contact Britain's Home Office over their concerns about the way the Italian police is handling the latest developments in Formula One's spying affair.
McLaren issued a statement on Friday denying claims in an Italian police statement that there was evidence showing the responsibility of certain members of the British squad in the spying row.
The team claimed the statement from the Modena police was "grossly inaccurate and misleading".
A McLaren spokesperson has revealed the team plan to contact Home Office, the British government department dealing with law and order, to inform them about their concerns on how the Italian police are treating the affair.
"In the light of this type of publicity, which has apparently been generated by the Modena police, perhaps people can now understand our caution in engaging in such a process with them," said the spokesperson.
"Indeed, we intend to contact the Home Office to convey our concerns regarding the conduct of the entire matter."
