McLaren have launched an appeal against the points penalty they were hit with after the Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying controversy. McLaren were deducted 15 points due to them in the constructors’ championship and the British team have protested to the FIA via the Motor Sports Association, the governing body for the United Kingdom.

The punishment was handed down after Fernando Alonso was stripped of pole position and moved five places down the grid for impeding team-mate Lewis Hamilton in qualifying. Hamilton went on to win the race, with Alonso finishing fourth at the Hungaroring.
