Another day in Court

In what seems to be the “Year of Appeals;” A court date has been set for McLaren’s latest Appeal over fuel temperature irregularities discovered after the Brazilian Grand Prix. BMW Sauber and Williams fuel rigs were found to be below the mandated minimum temperature variance, yet the Brazilian Stewards dismissed this rules infraction.

Thus the revolving door of appearances before the “Now serving #43” International Court of Appeals will squeeze in Ron Dennis on November 15th for a token visit.

FIA “Whipping Boy” Max Mosley has made the following comments regarding this matter:

“For us the World Championship is over – the result is what it is,” he said. “A team presented an appeal; at the moment, this doesn’t change anything – it’s up to them to prove they are right.”Mosley also addressed the question of whether or not McLaren has the right to appeal the decision, given that the team did not protest the results of the Brazilian Grand Prix.“You could argue whether McLaren had a right to appeal,” he said. “They could have protested the result, but they didn’t. Apparently they didn’t measure the temperature of the fuel.“But, even if the cars classified ahead of Hamilton would be excluded, would this change his position? The Court of Appeal will have to rule on that.”

Thus I sincerely hope that these nefarious proceedings will NOT reverse Raikkonen

FAIRLY WINNING the 2007 Driver’s title…
