Following Friday's protest by the Ferrari, Sauber and Minardi teams,
McLaren - along with Jordan and Williams - have had their rear-wheel
braking systems outlawed.


The systems were protested on the grounds that they constituted an
additional steering arrangement, which are already banned in F1, and the
objections were upheld by the sport's technical committee.


The teams in question had already been asked to run with the systems
disabled on Friday pending the outcome of the technical enquiry, and were
then asked to remove them in time for qualifying.


The removal of the system did not prevent the McLaren pairing of Mika
Hakkinen and David Coulthard annexing the front row of the grid for the
Brazilian GP however.
