Lewis Hamilton — nul points deducted
Crack racing team McLaren has avoided any sanctions in the “spy” scandal that has rocked Formula One in recent weeks. The verdict was handed down because of insufficient evidence.
After a six-hour hearing of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris, the FIA’s highest power, the result was “no penalty.” After the month he’s had, that must come as a huge relief.
This means that McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton, who currently leads the Drivers’ Championship, will not have any points deducted as he bids to become world champ in his first season in the sport.
