F1 McLaren loses 2007 Constructors’ points and gets $100m fine

The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team has lost its points in the Constructors’ World Championship for 2007 and will not be allowed to score in the final four races – and has been fined $100m, although this will be reduced because the team will be credited the money that it would have won this year.

The points in the Drivers’ World Championship will remain as they are.

The punishment has now been officially confirmed by the FIA but the stories in Paris come from reliable sources. The team is expected to appeal.

McLaren Press Statement
“The most important thing is that we will be going motor racing this weekend, the rest of the season and every season. This means that our drivers can continue to compete for the World Championship. However having been at the hearing today I do not accept that we deserved to be penalised in this way.”

Following the news that the McLaren Mercedes team have been stripped of its 2007 constructors’ points and handing down a record fine of 100 million (US) dollars, rivals Ferrari are now the championship winning team this year pending any appeal.
