McLaren F1 Fine

1 Replies



100 Million?? Does that sound excessive to you?! Not to mention being out of this season's competition. Just for using confidential information on their competitor? I think this fine is completely out of proportion. People do the most terrible things and get a slap on the hand. BA and Virgin rip us off with "fuel charges" one tells on the other and BA got fined, Virgin got off (also not the fairest thing ever, but never mind). In the case of McLaren vs Ferrari, no consumers were involved or ripped off and to me this fine is just too much! Any other opinions out there?

Yeah, it is a bit over the top! It's all about politics, isn't it? It was imposed by the sports governing body, whereas the airlines were fined by the American courts, I think? Which are well known for there over the top settlements.

But I reckon McLaren are breathing a sigh of relief that the drivers weren't stripped of their points. At least they can still get something from this year and 100 million these days doesn't buy many F1 cars!
