Mclaren will come out firing on all cylinders to prove a point to the rest of the world. Expect them to put up a real good fight for the rest of the season.

This Ferrari V/s Mclaren case is a classic example of a teenage couple having unprotected sex and in the near future the girl gets pregnant. Whom will the society conveniently blame? The girl of course. What people don't understand is that the fault is borne by both EQUALLY. If the guy could control his fly and not let it out of his pants, the pregnancy would not have occurred at all. Here the boy being Ferrari and the lgirl being Mclaren.

There is saying in Telugu, words of which should not be published on a public forum. But the essence of that is "One should wash their own After.Sales.Service before trying to point fingers at others dirty posteriors". In this world of sport every team tries to look for that hint to gain advantage over the opposition. This has happened in all forms of the game. The verdict is out, its time to move on.

Our so called Tifosi here are so blindly by love that they really don't care even if Ferrari were to win the championship without any competition. I say ban Mclaren next year too, or Ross Brawn should supply them with another dossier in 2008. Once again Ferrari should go onto win not by merit on track but because of their carelessness and inability to keep their secrets/strategy confidential.

Augers really well for Ferrari's status doesn't it? Winning without a competitive team all because they couldn't keep their fly where it belonged. Long live Tifosi, long live Ferrari, long live the Sport. F1 Zindabad.

what point will they prove the world? They are punished and they are guilty of cheating.This is typical hippocracy of Mclaren and its fans.

and that example is the wierdest i have ever come across.doesn't fit the incident at all.There was never a consent of both the involved parties(Mclaren and Ferrari) but of one team and one rogue employee.

Isn't it nice to carry on with the predictions here and discuss about the scam on the other?

Waiting with hands and fingers crossed for the qualifying!

All the investigations so far has proved beyond doubt that McLaren had Ferrari documents and knew how Ferrari's car was built and how it worked. Now in F1 with personnel changing employers this kinda information is going to be move from one team to another.

The fact is WMSC has not been able to prove that McLaren has gained or used Ferrari technology/information on their cars. McLaren has a strong R&D team and has been in this business for many many years and won many championships. As Steer put it they are at fault as they knew a competitors technical information but it ends there.
Adrian Newey the God of aerodynamics in F1 is now with Red Bull, and he carries so much tech info about McLaren that Red Bull should have started winning races. But that hasn't happened coz the cars are different and what you know about one car cannot be immediately applied on another to gain that advantage.

So if you see a McLaren car winning races don't start to scream that it is because they know Ferrari secrets. They are winning races because they developed a car which is built on last years design and made it bullet proof. Mercedes engines were unreliable last year... you think they saw Ferrari documents and suddenly became reliable!!!

McLaren have been punished for holding Ferrari info and there ends the matter.

If Ferrari wants to prove a point let them now beat McLaren on track in the next four races and win the drivers championship... that will be a fitting reply to this years championship!
