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 sport 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.
