In the FIA statement it states that " ** No McLaren representative will be allowed on the podium should a McLaren driver win in any of the remaining races of the 2007 season."
Surely as drivers under contract to McLaren both Alonso & Hamilton are 'representatives' of McLaren.
If McLaren decide to interpret the FIA statement as such, this could ruin the podium celebrations for any of the races that McLaren win for the rest of the season and create a damaging situation that may cause the FIA to backtrack on its original statement. This could be a more farcical and damaging situation than Indianapolis 2005
If McLaren want to make a point to the FIA is this a direction that they may wish to take? Can we imagine a situation occuring where only the third placed driver might appear on the podium?
I like that one. Playing with words!
But Yop, that would be a kind of answer to the FIA!!!
Anyhow by the mean time, Alonso is heading the second practice which is the best behavior !
Be first everywhere on the track but boycott the podium !!!!

Nice try, like the play on words, but they mean a representative to pick up the Constructor's trophy...
I wouldn't boycott the podium if I were the drivers. We wouldn't want to see a million or two more on the FIA's bill for not respecting podium ceremony protocol, would we? - anyone remember Austria 02? ;)
I think they should stay off the podium in protest. (the drivers i mean). Ferrari and the fia are getting away with murder and will only be happy when ferrari get on top again. Even if it is by hook or crook
