McLaren boss Ron Dennis has been hit with a six month driving ban after totting up twelve points on his licence.

Dennis was handed the ban after his latest infringement, where he was found guilty of jumping a red light.

Despite telling a magistrates court that he had only done so because he was concerned about being hit by a car travelling behind, Dennis was handed enough points to activate a ban which will see him off the road for six months.

"Our executive chairman's driving licence has been suspended for six months following four minor traffic infringements that resulted in 12 penalty points being accrued," a McLaren team spokesman told the Guardian.

Dennis stood down as McLaren team principal back in 2009 to focus on his role of executive chairman of the company.
