McLaren’s Brazilian appeal inadmissible
Saturday, 17 November 2007
f1 race 3After a month of preparation from all sides involved - the hearing in London and a subsequent day of deliberation - the FIA International Court of Appeal has thrown out McLaren’s appeal against the findings of the stewards’ at the season finale in Brazil.

The stewards’ decision not to exclude Williams Toyota and BMW Sauber from the Interlagos race has not been considered and therefore the race results stand...


{mos_fb_discuss:1} The following is a press release issued by the FIA in which they announce the findings and confirm that Kimi Raikkonen is in fact the 2007 Formula One World Champion.

The FIA International Court of Appeal met in London on Thursday, November 15, 2007, to examine an appeal lodged by the Motor Sports Association (MSA) on behalf of its licence-holder Vodafone McLaren Mercedes against the decision (document 41) of the Panel of the Stewards of the 2007 Brazilian Grand Prix dated 21 October 2007 and counting towards the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Following a report from the Technical Delegate indicating that the temperature of fuel pumped into the cars N°9 - Nick Heidfeld, N°10 - Robert Kubica, N°16 - Nico Rosberg and N°17 - Kazuki Nakajima, was more than 10 degrees centigrade below ambient temperature, the Stewards of the Meeting met to consider whether a penalty should be imposed.

Having heard the evidence they decided not to impose a penalty as they had sufficient doubt as to both the temperature of the fuel on board the car and to the true ambient temperature.

Having heard the explanations of both parties and having examined the various documents and other evidence, the Court decided that the appeal lodged by Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is inadmissible.

The International Court of Appeal was presided over by Mr Jan STOVICEK (Czech Republic), elected President, and composed of Mr John CASSIDY (United States), Mr Vassilis KOUSSIS (Greece) and Mr José MACEDO e CUNHA (Portugal).
