McLaren Hearing Cancled

Info supplied by www.formula1.com

The FIA has announced that the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) has agreed to cancel next year's hearing into the report on McLaren’s 2008 car. The meeting had been scheduled to take place on February 14, 2008.

Last week, McLaren admitted that leaked Ferrari data had been more widely disseminated within the team than they had previously thought and publicly apologised. In the statement, the squad also promised to suspend development of systems on their 2008 machine that might have been inspired by the Italian team’s confidential information.

As a result, FIA President Max Mosley asked members of the WMSC for their consent to cancel the hearing and draw a line under the matter.

New info people from the Herald Sun: (www.heraldsun.com.au)

McLaren data saga ends, Renault in the clear too:
LEWIS Hamilton's McLaren team can look forward to next season without the threat of a further points penalty after Formula One's governing body formally closed its spy controversy.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) yesterday advised that its World Motor Sport Council had cancelled a February hearing to assess McLaren's 2008 car.

FIA president Max Mosley proposed the cancellation last Thursday after McLaren apologised for having Ferrari data in its possession and recognised that it had penetrated deeper into the team than suspected.

The hearing had been called after a FIA technical report raised suspicions some of the systems in the 2008 McLaren design could be influenced by the leaked Ferrari information.

McLaren was stripped of all its constructors' points and fined $116.52 million this year for the spy saga. February's meeting threatened to prolong the agony with the possibility of a further sanction.

The team, which saw British rookie Hamilton lose the championship by a point to Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen, has offered to freeze development of the suspect systems.

Ferrari has agreed to close the controversy on a sporting level but plans to continue legal action against individuals in Italy and Britain.

The 2008 season starts in Australia on March 16.

McLaren was also involved in a second controversy when the Renault team was found at a hearing this month to have had McLaren data in its possession since last year.

However Renault, who failed to win a race in 2007, was not punished because the FIA ruled there was insufficient evidence the championship had been affected.

In a 77-page transcript of that hearing published on the FIA website, the French manufacturer argued the case was one of stupidity rather than any deliberate intention to cheat.

Renault denied gaining any advantage and said former McLaren engineer Phil Mackereth, who took technical information with him when he joined Renault, had acted for personal reasons.

"His actions in this situation were stupidity, naivety and a degree of recklessness -- and little more than that," the transcript recorded Renault's technical director Bob Bell telling the hearing.

"There is no malevolence, there is no intention to deliberately do wrong or to cheat. That is not in his make-up."

Renault's lawyer described Mackereth, who appeared at the hearing, as being like "a rabbit in the headlights".

Thank god that's all cleared up!
