Renaults vara eller icke vara i Valencia bestäms den 17e augusti

FIA har meddelat när man kommer behandla Renaults överklagan. 17 augusti smäller det nere i Paris. Stallet straffades ju sist med det något överraskande beslutet att de stängs ute från att tävla i nästa tävling; Alonsos hemmabana i Valencia..

Episoden som startade det hela var ju att Alonso släpptes ut ur depån med ett sånt där lock på ett däck som var löst. Jag skrev om det och har en video på det här. Runt 40 sekunder in börjar det hela gå snett.. Så ganska spännande och avgörande när överklagan och beslut tas upp i Paris. Besked väntas dock först dagen efter.

Så här skriver FIA i sitt pressmeddelande;

Press Release
International Court of Appeal
30/07/2009

The following hearing of the International Court of Appeal will take place in Paris:

Hearing
Appeal lodged by the Fédération Française du Sport Automobile (FFSA) on behalf of its competitor ING Renault F1 Team against decision N°45 taken by the Panel of the Stewards on 26 July 2009 at the 2009 Grand Prix of Hungary and counting towards the 2009 FIA Formula One World Championship

On 26 July 2009, the Stewards of the Meeting decided to suspend the Competitor ING Renault F1 Team (“Renault”) from the next event in the 2009 Formula One World Championship for the following reasons:

– Renault knowingly released car N°7 (Fernando Alonso) from the pit stop position without one of the retaining devices for the wheel-nuts being securely in position;
– being aware of this, Renault failed to take any action to prevent the car from leaving the pit-lane;
– Renault failed to inform the driver of this problem or to advise him to take appropriate action given the circumstances;
– This resulted in a car part detaching at turn 5 and the wheel itself detaching at turn 9.

The FFSA has appealed the Stewards’ decision on behalf of Renault.
