McLaren will Not Appeal Austrian GP Penalty

Tuesday July 25th, 2000

Following the decision of the Austrian Grand Prix's race stewards to dock 10 constructors' championship points off McLaren and an additional $50,000 fine, the Woking team said the woud not appeal the penalty.

"After today's decision, we now consider the matter closed," said McLaren International Managing Director Martin Whitmarsh.

"Whilst the loss of the constructors' championship points is very disappointing, we believe that with our current performance we will, by the end of the season, render the loss academic."

Hakkinen said he would do all he could to make up for the loss of the team's points, starting with the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim next Sunday.

"Obviously, I am pleased to have my victory in Austria confirmed and I am now looking forward to the German Grand Prix," said the Finn. "I am, of course, as part of the team, disappointed that we have lost the Constructors' points but I am determined that, with David, we will together help the team win this year's Constructors' Championship."
