Source GMM<br>CAPSIS International <p></b>Ex-Toyota boss charged in F1 spy scandal</b><p>In addition to reports that Gustav Brunner is implicated in the Toyota-Ferrari spy scandal, it has been confirmed that former F1 principal Ove Andersson has also been charged. <p>Prosecutors in Cologne, home of Toyota's F1 team, contend that former aerodynamics boss Rene Hilhorst is also involved, as well as ousted chief designer Brunner. <p>All three no longer work at Toyota. <p>The case, which dates back several years, hinges around ex-Ferrari workers who allegedly stole software from the Maranello team and used it to test aerodynamic data for the 2003 and 2004 Toyota single seaters. <p>"Toyota Motorsport has not been formally notified of the matter and does not have full knowledge of the specific issues," a team spokeswoman explained. <p>It is expected that a German court will hear the charges some time this year, while the former Ferrari workers in question will be tried under Italian law. <p>The team spokeswoman added: "Toyota Motorsport would like to stress that the charges have not been brought against the company." <p>Andersson led Toyota into F1 in 2002, and remained in charge in '03. <p><br>BAN TOYOTA IN F1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
