Jaguar Gain Injunction to Stop Newey Working at McLaren

Thursday June 7th, 2001

The Jaguar Racing team confirmed in a statement on Thursday that they have obtained a High Court injunction to prevent technical director Adrian Newey working at McLaren after July next year.

Jaguar, who state they have a legally binding agreement for the services of Newey from August 2002, have taken the battle over the technical director one step further.

The Jaguar statement said: "Jaguar Racing this afternoon obtained an injunction at the High Court in London on behalf of Ford Motor Company and Jaguar Racing Ltd against McLaren International Ltd.

"The terms of this injunction restrain McLaren International from entering into or continuing any contract of employment with Adrian Newey post 31, July, 2002."

Jaguar's statement came shortly after a press release from the McLaren team, which claimed that Jaguar knew Newey would be staying at McLaren before they released their original statement on June 1 that he would be joining them.

McLaren went on to state that they and Newey wanted to put the matter behind them, but after this latest release from Jaguar the matter is set for a lengthy battle in the courts.
