It’s official, there is no saving F1 and the governing body have sounded the final death knoll as they prove once again that their motivations are money and Ferrari, and that their decisions are continually inconsistent, wrong and unfair.
On Thursday the governing body, the FIA, decided that McLaren should pay a US $100 million fine and not receive any constructors points for this season for their alleged part in the whole affair.
As the Metro newspaper pointed out McLaren have been hit with a fine that is over twelve times the amount that Network Rail were hit for after the death of 31 passengers at Paddington station in the UK.
If a value was placed on human life, that would mean whatever McLaren was found guilty of was equivalent to 372 passengers dying at the hands of a negligent transport company. Is that entirely right?
