Brazilian Grand Prix, Interlagos 2007 Race StartMcLaren appeal against the stewards’ decision at the Brazilian Grand Prix is to be heard this Thursday, but due to planned transport strikes in Paris, the venue has been moved from Paris to London. McLaren are appealing against the stewards’ decision not to impose any penalty to the Williams Toyota and BMW Sauber team for the alleged use of cool fuel at the Brazilian finale last month.

It was claimed at the time that fuel used by both was more then ten degrees Celcius cooler than the ambient termperature and this is against the sportiung regulations. There was however some dispute as to what the ambient temperature actually was, so no penalty was forthcoming. Nico Rosberg, Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld finished fourth, fifth and sixth respectively, just ahead of championship runner-up Lewis Hamilton.

The following is a statement from the FIA with regards to the venue change:

“Due to the transport strikes that are planned in Paris in the coming days the International Court of Appeal Hearing lodged by the Motor Sports Association (MSA) on behalf of its licence-holder Vodafone McLaren Mercedes has been moved from the FIA Headquarters in Paris to an alternative location in London.”
