McLaren have lodged an appeal against the punishment that stripped Lewis Hamilton of his Belgian Grand Prix win.

Until they paint their cars red and put a prancing horse badge on the front they have got no chance of winning an appeal!!

It is yet to be decided whether the appeal is legal or not

but sadly don't see it getting McLaren anywhere, so aint gonna hold my breath.

As jakimo points out, they might not even be able to appeal under the rules.

They have already shown total contempt for the worldwide audience.

I can easily believe they would be so arrogant as to hide behind the article which says there can be no appeal against 'drive-through' penalties.

But I would like to think (maybe somewhat naively)that external forces will persuade them different.

Would it be very cynical of me to say that Mr Mosley has had a lot of bad publicity in the British press and Mclaren are a British team.

I can spot a few drive throughs in this clip. To much money involved now.

It's a racket!

I don't expect Ferrari were penalised in the race before last for releasing one of it's drivers at the same time as another driver was going past in the pit lane?

This was a dangerous thing to do!

If it was McLaren then there probably would have been an instant punishment handed out.

I've lost interest in F1 over these petty arguments over the last few seasons ever since 6 cars raced in the USA.

All this is doing is damaging the sport for the average fan and since the Mosley scandal dragging the sport in to the gutter!

Do you think as they are finding it difficult to entertain us with just cars parading round a track, that they are adding drama and mystery to the equasion to keep us entertained? Can't wait for the sex and violence.
