NEWS STORY
24/04/2005

Following today's San Marino GP, the Race Director referred Ralf Schumacher to the stewards for an incident that occurred with Nick Heidfeld's Williams following his second pit stop. Having reviewed the evidence, the stewards considered that it was an unsafe manoeuvre and applied a 25-second penalty.

In response, Panasonic Toyota Racing team principal Tsutomu Tomita said: "In view of the extremely vague description of the regulation and a number of similar incidents which have gone unpunished, Toyota has decided to appeal the decision of the stewards in order to clarify this issue for the future."

Should the appeal fail, this would mean that Ralf wolud lose eighth place to Heidfeld, thus giving WilliamsF1 a point.
