Ferrari have reacted to the news that arch-rivals McLaren
have been handed a record fine and been stripped of their constructor points after the FIA
was satisfied new evidence proved they had been 'spying'.
Ferrari took the matter back to the World Motor Sport Council when McLaren
were exonerated initially for being in possession of documents but not having them influence the current car.
However, new evidence, which is still unknown, appears to have worked in Ferrari's favour, prompting the FIA
to strip McLaren
of their constructor points and land them a massive $100 million fine.
Ferrari have since released this brief statement signalling their satisfaction of the outcome:
“Ferrari acknowledges the decision of the FIA
to sanction Vodafone McLaren
Mercedes for its breach of Article 151c of the International Sporting Code.
”In light of new evidence, facts and behaviour of an extremely serious nature and grossly prejudicial to the interest of the sport have been further demonstrated.
”Ferrari is satisfied that the truth has now emerged.”
