Fia dismissed complaints from Alfa Romeo Racing, which objected to the decision of the commissioners, who were fined after the race for the German GP due to irregularities in the start of the race by Kimmi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi 30. seconds on their race time.
Alfa Romeo racers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi finished seventh and eighth in the German GP, and the FIA opened an investigation after the race for possible irregularities in both cars at the start of the race, as time went on the clutch torque did not match the one prescribed by FIE technical regulation.
The Fie Appeal Court in Paris dismissed the appeal of the Alfa Romeo team, claiming the request to set aside the decision of the Commissioners in the German GP race as unfounded.
Raikkonen and Giovinazzi were penalized with a time mark-up and consequent loss of points, and team boss Frederic Vasseur explained after the race in Germany why the Swiss team would appeal the decision.
“We have suffered a clutch failure that was not due to our influence and now we need to do a thorough analysis. We respect the FIA's decision, but we will certainly appeal, because we believe we have sufficient evidence. “
The FIE's decision is final, and Robert Kubica will retain the point he received after punishing both of Alf's racers.
