FIA Court of Appeal to be kept busy


The FIA's International Court of Appeal will be kept busy in the weeks ahead

Next Friday, October 12, the International Court of Appeal will hear the appeal lodged by the Automobile Club d'Italia/Commissione Sportiva Automobilistica Italiana (ACI/CSAI) on behalf of Scuderia Toro Rosso against the decision (document 41) of the Panel of the Stewards of the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix dated 30 September 2007 and counting towards the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Following a report from the race director, the stewards of the meeting decided to impose a penalty of 25 seconds to be added to the elapsed race time of Vitantonio Liuzzi, for having overtaken another competitor while a yellow flag restriction was in place.

The hearing will take place at the FIA's headquarters in Paris.

On Wednesday October 24, the International Court of Appeal will meet in London further to the receipt of a letter from Williams regarding the legality of the entry of Prodrive F1 in the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Should Lewis Hamilton be penalized following the investigation into the Sebastian Vettel/Mark Webber incident at the Fuji Speedway, this will doubtless lead to yet another appeal hearing.
