Its a pretty lengthy article, but it goes into great detail over the Ferrari / McLaren scandal of 2007.

Thanks for the link, Peter. Quite an interesting read. McLaren deserved to be punished but I think the penalty was a bit extreme. F-! has always been a playground of serious money and it takes so long for the technology developed there to filter down to where normal people can afford it. There are a bunch of smart fellows in auto racing and you can usually give the competition a through examination at arms length and devise how they are going fast. I've always loved the old saying "Speed Costs, How fast do you want to go?"
