Earlier in the day they were reporting McLaren would be out of F1 for 2007 and 2008. I guess in effect they still are with this fine. Mercedes Benz had just gotten their reliability issues resolved this season and now they are associated with this. A lot has been written about Ron Dennis and his role in all this but you have to feel badly for Norbert Haug, Mercedes, and the team's other sponsors for what McLaren has gotten them involved with.

Its clear McLaren as a team are guilty but this penalty is really excessive in my opinion (and I am a Ferrari fan first and a Mercedes fan 2nd or 3rd)

Ahh....
so you must know more than the rest of us..To state they are guilty..Please enlighten us all.
Ferrari I would remind you are only 1/12 of F1, but they act like they are more than 150%of the organisation. Would this happen if Hamilton and Alonso had not so many points... I think not..But thats just my opinion, i might change it if I have more information..

The evidence needs to be very convincing. In a way I hope that Merecedes pull out of F1 as a matter of principle. No matter what happenned here the way it has been handled is amatuer - even football players are dealt with more even handedly than the FIA has managed in this case.

Stripped of points and fined $100 million...I need to see a lot more evidence to be convinced. I put a link below for you to read emercedesbenz.com's take on it if you're interested.

I don't get your attitude. Read the official FIA release with Alonso's and DelaRosa's pitiful email transcripts. They are as guilty as Jack Ruby.
