McLaren Hit By Constructors Ban

The BBC:

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 (£49.2m), 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.

A far harsher penalty than anyone expected, especially the huge $100 million fine which McLaren may appeal.
