McLaren has released a statement from Ron Dennis after he and FIA President Max Mosley disagreed about what was said in the telephone call Dennis made to inform the FIA of the new evidence regarding the spy saga.

Just prior to qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix television footage showed Mosley describing the phone call and apparently implying that Dennis had not been truthful with him. Dennis expressed surprise at what Mosley had said and the follwing statement from the McLaren principal has since been released.

"After a frank and open discussion with Max Mosley this afternoon, we reached full agreement on the relevant content and context of the discussions that took place on the Sunday of the Hungarian Grand Prix. Our subsequent recollections of these, which I repeated to the World Motor Sport Council on Thursday, will be contained in the transcript to be made available to the media next week."

"It has been a difficult period in the history of McLaren but we have tried hard to co-operate with the FIA which has been committed to a transparent and thorough process."

"In the interests of Formula 1, our Partners and our team, I am now considering how to achieve closure on this matter. Once I have formed my own opinion I will make a recommendation to my shareholders who will ultimately decide with me whether to appeal."
