Default Mclaren face possible ban for 2007 & 2008!! (Edit: Now confirmed)

McLaren were cleared on Thursday by Formula One's governing body, the FIA, of any wrongdoing in the espionage affair that has engulfed the sport this season. This decision was taken today in Paris in the F1 Word Council Meet. Reasons sited were lack of sufficient evidence to prove they had knowledge or taken advantage of the information at hand.

Important to note that only Alonso was not present in this meet, both Ron and Rookie Hamilton were seen at the even.

This is great news. After the 1-2 finish in Monza. This will give a great boost for the Mclaren team.

thats what i was wondering when i saw the title of the thread.
i have been sifting through various news sites and searching Google news for the past one hour to eagerly know the outcome and still its not out.

all i know is ross brawn, hamilton, de la rosa are some of few notable names attending the case.

Been on reuters since morning for updates , the post was a real shocker ,
The way hammy is tagging denis , i doubt he will ever get a chance to drive for other top teams in future like renault , ferrari (no way) , BMW (very little chance) , Honda ... got to be mclaren for the next 3 years i guess , think alonso is playing smart here , whatsay ?

well its still unconfirmed but planet-f1,autosport and f1racing are carrying the news,most likely to be true.

edit2:F1-live is now carrying the news that Mcalren have been disqualified.

This is going to be one hot thread.

Autosport is changing it's page every minute or so. And It's returning time out errors too.
Many things are happening at one go. It seems there're going to be some very happy faces in few hours.
