    Todt not accepting constructors title

    Jean Todt is not pleased with the result that was handed down by the WMSC / FIA. He believes that the drivers of McLaren should also have been punished because if team McLaren benefited in any way from the Ferrari documents in their possession then so did it’s drivers. How can only a portion of the team be penalized? Are not the drivers of a team part of the team? Jean Todt, by not yet accepting the Constructor’s Championship is hoping that McLaren will appeal this decision. In so doing, said parties involved will meet again in Paris in front of the WMSC / FIA. The possibility exists that further sanctions can be brought against McLaren, hence it’s drivers being penalized.

    • HELLO - the drivers got imunity from prosecution for their testamonies so even if Mclaren appeal the FIA cannot go back on that agreement.
      Also maybe todt isnt happy cause he knows that if mclaren do appeal it might also mean his team being done for bringing the sport into disripute as it was a Ferrari empolyee that started all this off and the FIA's stance is that THE TEAM is responsable for any employees cock ups.
      Also how does an employee manage to download all those pages off a company computer and send them to a rival team without no-one at ferrari noticing. They didnt realise untill someone in a photocoping shop contacted them and told them - Funny that cause i smell a massive rat and underhand dealing at Ferrari.

        Basically, what hornyb66 is saying is that:

        (quote from someone else' post)
        Having something stolen from you makes you as guilty as the thief and as guilty as the person that bought the stolen item(knowing it was a stolen item).
        I'm glad I've never been burgled or I could be in prison.
