Ferrari has decided to drop all legal action against its British Formula 
1 archrival McLaren for its illegal possession of technical data 
belonging to the Italian team, Ferrari announced in a press release on 

''Ferrari acknowledges McLaren's reiterated apology for the well-known 
events which occurred during the 2007 Formula 1 Championship and, in the 
best interests of Formula 1 and taking into account the formal closure 
in December 2007 of the FIA and FIA World Motor Sport Council 
proceedings against McLaren, it confirms that it has accepted to put an 
end to all outstanding controversies between the two teams,'' the 
statement said.

Ferrari added that it will donate to charity the concluding payment it 
received from McLaren.

Ferrari said in the same statement that it will still pursue its claims 
against Nigel Stepney, the team's former chief engineer believed to have 
been responsible for giving a 780-page dossier of Ferrari secrets to 
McLaren's chief designer Mike Coughlan ahead of the 2007 season.
