UPDATE: reports from Paris are saying that McLaren has been fined $100m (US) and that the team will loose all points gained in 2007 season, valid for Constructors’ Championship. No penalties for Alonso and Hamilton, so far.

UPDATE 2: apparently the two year exclusion was just an official proposal of the World Motor Sport Council, and the 26-man body was subsequently due to vote.
