Ron Dennis, head of McLaren Automotive and former Team Principal for the company’s Formula 1 team, has received a driving ban of six months after failing to stop for a red traffic light, according to reports in the British media.
“Our executive chairman's driving licence has been suspended for six months following four minor traffic infringements that resulted in 12 penalty points being accrued,” a McLaren team spokesperson is quoted as saying.
The Surrey Advertiser newspaper reports that the 63-year-old has pleaded guilty to skipping the red light, claiming that he did so to avoid stopping suddenly and being hit by a following car, believed to be that of a friend.
“There were only two other cars around but I felt that it would be more prudent to continue rather than stop,” Dennis is quoted as saying.
