Another day, another letter in the, quite frankly now getting tedious, public war of words between Ferrari and McLaren, with sporadic guest appearances from the Italian Automobile Club. After Ron Dennis' wordy epistle to Luigi Macaluso, the President of said Club replied by stating the blindingly obvious; that there's a "distinct difference" in the way Ferrari and McLaren view the situation.

Macaluso went on to say that it was not for him to answer Dennis' claims but, amongst other things, yet again pointed out that McLaren was found to be in breach of the sporting code but escaped penalty. This letter was, as previous correspondences have, made public.

Dennis has retaliated with a further public letter to mention Ferrari's "118 page written submission", which apparently belies Macaluso's belief that Ferrari was not given enough opportunity to tell its own side of the story. He concluded by saying he had not intended to make this new letter public but seeing as Macaluso had made his public he was going to do likewise.

"I suggest that we now leave this process to the internal consideration of the FIA," Dennis finished.

It's about time somebody said something sensible. If you, dear reader, are not yet ready to wear earmuffs or turn off your computer for fear of hearing more accusations and counter-claims, you can find both Macaluso's and Dennis' most recent letters on the official McLaren website. Oh, and there's a race on Sunday, in case you'd forgotten.
