Former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher believes that the FIA should drop the lie-gate scandal in the interest of the sport. This week, the FIA made a statement saying that McLaren is expected for an extraordinary meeting of the World Motor Sport Council. This means that the team could face further sanctions.
Schumacher said to the German media: " "You could say that this is inexcusable, but I say it should be excused.
"I have to ask myself why the FIA draws this thing out even further. It is unfortunate that at the moment such an exciting season is overshadowed by such things.
