McLaren hauled before FIA council

McLaren face the threat of serious sanctions after today being summoned to appear before an extraordinary meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris on April 29.

The team are deemed to be in breach of the FIA’s International Sporting Code relating to the recent ’lie-gate’ saga surrounding world champion Lewis Hamilton’s exclusion from the Australian Grand Prix.

It is the third time McLaren have been hauled before the WMSC in less than two years, with the last hearing resulting in the Woking-based team being handed a sporting record £49.2m (€54.7m) fine following the ’spy-gate’ furore.
