Good. They got what they deserved. Lets get some perspective here guys. If they hadn't been punished we'd all be arguing about how the big boys get away with what they want and that there is no integrity in F1, blah dee blah dee blah!
Then there is Ron Dennis doing his world renowned bleating about it and how the timing is bad.
Look. This is a CRIMINAL investigation now!
Firstly : If it was you or I, do you think the police would choose there time to carefully make an arrest? No, they would probably bust right into your Ma's funeral and read you your rights.
Secondly : If I had brought something obviously stolen or suspect into my house, my wifes defence of 'Oh I didn't know' wouldn't wash. They'd tell her ignorance is no defence.
I would be facing a charge of handling stolen goods. They should be too.
This is not the cleaner they caught with a dodgy memory stick and a couple of sketches on it. It was someone very high up, and no just the one person. The people involved are important enough in the team such that they should have told the FIA immediately.
If you receive the documents, you go to the authorities, straight to the authorities. You do not pass Go or collect £200/$200.
I love Mercedes but somebody needs a good solid kick over this. And that is exactly what they got. With both feet.
