My oh my, it doesn't get worse than this. The Formula 1's team title just went through the window after McLaren-Mercedes being stripped of their points in the 2007 Formula One constructors' championship after the outcome of the "spygate" row.
The World Motor Sport Council said it would publish the reasoning behind its verdict on Friday.And McLaren team chief Ron Dennis said he would wait until then before deciding whether to appeal.
"The most important thing is that McLaren have been stripped of their points in the 2007 Formula One constructors' championship after the outcome of the "spygate" row.The team were also fined a record $100m (KShs. 6.7 billion), which includes any prize and television money they would have earned from the constructors' championship.
But drivers Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso can keep their points.The team must also prove there is no Ferrari "intellectual property" in their cars next year before racing.The decision means Ferrari, who go into this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix second in the constructors' championship, 57 points ahead of third-placed BMW Sauber, are almost certain to be crowned champions.
