As expected Red Bull’s appeal against the exclusion of Daniel Ricciardo from the results of the Australian GP will be heard between the Bahrain and Chinese events.
The FIA confirmed today that the International Court of Appeal hearing will take place at 0930 in Paris on Monday April 14. Given the usual time constraints it was never going to happen any earlier than the gap between the two races.
A short statement said: “On 16 March 2014 the panel of the stewards decided to exclude car No. 3 (driver Daniel Ricciardo) from the results of the race as it was found being out of compliance with the Technical Regulations (the Technical Delegate reported to the Stewards that car No. 3 exceeded the required fuel mass flow of 100kg/h).
“On 20 March 2014, the Österreichischer Automobil-Motorrad und Touring Club – Oberste Nationale Sportkommission für den Motorsport (ÖAMTC-OSK) on behalf of its licence-holder, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, decided to appeal this decision before the International Court of Appeal.”
