Well I believe Jean Todt is on the FIA's executive committee,so draw your own conclusions.I've already posted my verdict on what I think will happen,which is basically for political reasons the FIA will reject the appeal.But Ferrari having a lawyer there I find disgraceful.Why is he there? Ferrari weren't supposed to have complained about Lewis in the first place,and the verdict should have nothing to do with Ferrari.Also this appeal looks to me like a kangaroo court.The same organisation that made the decision now hears the appeal against it.Are the FIA really going to upset its ally (Ferrari)? Going to go against its own stewards? Wreck the authority of its stewards? Make a championship less close?

We'll all know it.. Tomorrow..

That would be a good climax in a drama serie :p

way i see it is McLaren are appealing for the sake of bring their point across that they didnt deserve it. its kind of obvious they were never gonna get the decision overturned and hamilton didnt do any favours with what he told to Tozzi (kudos to him for sayin it). McLaren had to put up with enough over the past few years i think to just "move on" yet again from a decision they think is unfair against them.

I´ve heard in the afternoon or early evening.

I hope they give him the points back and this inexpressibly saga ends.

Sky news are wrong then. :p

The appeal has been rejected:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsp ... 627941.stm

Seriously, appealing FIA's decisions has mostly been useless in the past.

I read from other sources that the appeal was inadmissible as was the Brazil GP appeal last year. Maybe McLaren should hire better lawyers as they don't even know when they are eligible to appeal.

Official decision: http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpass_ ... t_id=36038

That's chanting, not singing.

Song chorus:
"Was it ever going to be
Any other way?

No"

In recent history, the only team that has won an appeal against the maFIA is, well, the mafia itself, aka scuderia ferari.

Well I daresay we will be hearing maFIA, FIAt, and Ferrari International Assistance a hell of a lot.. but the thing is it won't change anything. So keep cursing in your head. We don't want a repeat of post-Belgium.

Lets all say it together :D

Happy to see the rules being followed, and that the penalty stands.

The final answer:

http://www.fia.com/en-GB/mediacentre/pr ... 30908.aspx


Here you can learn the difference between rules (or laws) and justice... not at all the same thing... :sad:
The fact that the race direction made a mistake saying that the overtaking was ok is irrelevant...
As usual with the FIA, nobody does the interesting questions...
