The FIA’s International Court of Appeal has declared through an official statement that the rear diffusers on Brawn GP’s, Toyota’s and Williams’ single-seaters are legal, confirming the Australian and Malaysian Grand Prix stewards’ decision to give the cars the green light.

The appeals submitted by Scuderia Ferrari, Red Bull Racing, Renault and BMW Sauber have been consequently rejected.

The FIA statement reads:

The FIA International Court of Appeal has decided to deny the appeals submitted against decisions numbered 16 to 24 taken by the Panel of the Stewards on 26 March at the 2009 Grand Prix of Australia and counting towards the 2009 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Based on the arguments heard and evidence before it, the Court has concluded that the Stewards were correct to find that the cars in question comply with the applicable regulations.
