PARIS (AFP) –
McLaren were on Wednesday handed a suspended three-race ban for bringing the sport into disrepute, motorsport’s governing body, the FIA, announced.
“They (McLaren) have demonstrated there is a complete culture change, that it’s all different to what it was,” he said after the hearing at the FIA’s headquarters at place de la Concorde.
The fall-out for McLaren has already been extensive, with the widely respected Ryan sacked, and Ron Dennis stepping aside as team boss, to be replaced by Whitmarsh.
The Briton, whose title defence has got off to a wretched start, has harvested just nine points from the first four races of the season, 22 points adrift of his compatriot Jenson Button of the Brawn team.
