Didn't notice the "constructers" bit. My bad.

Barking mad.

Hamilton to move to Ferrari then... ( What a kick in the teeth for a fantastic debut season. )

Maybe England should pull out of the world cup,.....and the cricket team should just take up fishing or something.

Hamilton won't go to Ferrari, he's too close to the team.

You missed that they will also have to present next year’s car for inspection before they can race next season.... Just McLaren, nobody else.

Well, I'm holding judgement to see what new the ‘evidence’ is... but it needs to be major - and I mean 'atom bomb' major to make any sense of this fine.

Unless the evidence truly has McLaren over a barrel, the team will have no choice but to appeal - possibly in the civil courts. Also expect McLaren to try and tar the other teams with the same brush. Don't think this is over yet.

Without earth shattering new evidence this looks like nothing more than a witch hunt from a governing body that has time and again re-written the rule books for Ferrari.

... and Ecclestone. Maybe he needs another yacht - or a new willy extension.

Quote: and Ecclestone

Ecclestone doesn't make (or change) the rules. Although he has managed to 'sell' F1 four times without actually owning it...
