McLaren have gone through the WMSC hearing with Martin Whitmarsh facing them alone and forced changes made at McLaren to pacify the FIA. The result - McLaren have been given a 3 race suspended ban. I'm not exactly sure what that means but I guess the race ban is there should they screw up again or worse the FIA feel like helping Ferrari in future, they can always find fault with McLaren and exercise the ban.
It would seem that the FIA have got what they wished for, that is getting rid of Ron Dennis and putting McLaren under ever more pressure to perform without making any mistakes no matter how small. On top of that they have an insurance in the form of the suspended ban should they feel like using it.
One thing I'm glad is that at least McLaren can still go racing and Lewis is still able to fight for the title. Hopefully the team will be able to find more performance on the car and win races from now on.
