The way things have gone for them maybe they should appeal. The FiA would probably give them 100 constructors points, £50m and free sausages for the rest of the season just to say sorry for the inconvenience!

@Taipan - given the FIA's part in this whole thing free sausages for the rest of the season should be given to all of the teams. People really should be directing their anger at the FIA for allowing the test to take place and providing counsel on how to skirt the regulations.

mark. but it was NOT the fia who allowed the test to go ahead, unsupervised. fia probably did not even know. whiting was the INDIVIDUAL responsible. not the first time he has done this.

richard - you are splitting hairs. Charlie is a representative of the FIA. He most likely used his FIA email account to provide counsel. If they have an employee who goes rogue then whose fault is it? Not Mercedes.
