The FIA’s World Motor Sport Council has announced it will hear the case into the Ferrari team orders scandal in Paris on 8 September, a the week between the Belgian and Italian Grands Prix.

The Italian team was fined $100,000 – which many feel to be a pittance – by the stewards for its breach of Article 39.1 of the sporting code in addition to bringing the _Y2Z9879sport into disrepute.

FIA President Jean Todt, who was instrumental in the Ferrari team orders scandal at the 2002 Austrian Grand Prix – the precursor to team orders being banned – will not chair the meeting; instead it will be run by the Deputy President for Sport, Graham Stoker.
