FIA Hearing: no penalty for McLarenThe FIA World Motor Sport Council has found McLaren guilty of possession of unauthorized Ferrari documents, but with no evidence that the team had made use of the information, the governing body decided not to punish McLaren for now.

“However, there is insufficient evidence that this information was used in such a way as to interfere improperly with the FIA Formula One World Championship. We therefore impose no penalty.”, was written in FIA’s statement. But if it is found in the future that the Ferrari information has been used to the detriment of the championship, we reserve the right to invite Vodafone McLaren Mercedes back in front of the WMSC where it will face the possibility of exclusion from not only the 2007 championship but also the 2008 championship.”

Regarding Stepney and Coughlan: “The WMSC will also invite Mr Stepney and Mr Coughlan to show reason why they should not be banned from international motor sport for a lengthy period and the WMSC has delegated authority to deal with this matter to the legal department of the FIA.”
