The FIA will reveal the reasoning behind its decision on Friday. So we can share our opinions according to that.

Wasn't Michael stripped off allll his points during the '97 season when Ferrari were desperately waiting for a world championship title?!

Alonso and Hamilton can keep their points and no one's raising a point on that. Buttttt if it was Ferrari stripped off their points and Michael allowed to keep his......we know exactly what alll critics would say!

Even I dont understand the logic behind punishing the team but not the drivers. Tha fact is that throughout the season they were driving better cars and hence the victories and points and I am not ready to believe they didnt knew of the sabotage, even if they didnt, the team sport means that the whole team is punished.
The whole season both the drivers had an unfair advantage among all the other drivers on the track and their points should have been stripped as well in the best interest of the spirit of sportsmanship, although it would have made it a one horse race for this season's driver's championship, the pracing horse.

There was in your face proof to what he did to Villeneuve. As opposed to how he was let off when he put Hill in the wall during the 95 (or was it 94) season.

Exactly, same situation here. There is "in your face proof" that they possessed Ferrari technical information illegally.

What I meant with my point was that the FIA is NOT a Ferrari OR Schumacher supporter.

One fellow from Ferrari sells some secret papers of his team to another fellow of Mclaren.
Instead of punishing the seller, the buyer's TEAM is punished. LOL!
Atleast both should've been punished. Or as the case stands clear, if the team didn't utilise the secret info, why should there be a punishment to the team?
Ok! No point in jumping the gun. Let's wait for the reasoning from FIA and WMSC.

Actually, Schumi admitted he tried to take JV out, that is why he was excluded. When Senna took Prost out, Senna never admitted anything, hence he was not excluded. So Schumi was a victim (and rightfully so) of his own honesty that year.

In '94, Hill could have won the Championship if only he had a bit more patience. And it was not Schumi who drove Hill into the wall, it was Hill who drove into a retiring Schumi! But, we digress. Lets get back to the topic here.

Sure, some people are unhappy with the FIA for penalizing McLaren, while others are unhappy that the drivers weren't docked. I'd like to think that I'm a die hard Ferrari fan, but I'd rather not see them win the constructor's championship (i.e. if they win it all) this way - it would be a hollow victory at best. Anyway, $100 million is a huge amount to stomach, even for McLaren. But I don't think that this decision was made lightly, & it sure would be interesting to go through the WMSC transcripts.

well who says Stepney is enjoying a vaction in the carrabien.The fia can only ban Stepney for FIA controlled motorsport and nothing else.

Secondly the buyer is as guilty as the seller,only difference is Stepney is not a F1 team.

Well i guess that clearly outlines which team has the better drivers then.

Ferrari seemed to have more technical issues this year than MClaren. Just wondering why would someone use Ferrari's technology when they are having issues and if Mclaren did use Ferrari's info, why is there such a dominance this year. Should'nt they be on the same page? As much as i was a Ferrari Fan when Schumi was behind the wheel, I feel Hamilton has what it takes to replace the void (perormance with consistency). Well if Mclaren manages to win the WCC in 2008, that will drive a very clear message to everyone.

What are U talking, Zakko?
Why WHY in God's name would Ferrari give its designs to Mclaren intentionally?
