BAR decision on Saturday

BRITISH AMERICAN RACING will, on Saturday, hear the result of their appeal against an overtaking move by Sauber's Kimi Raikkonen in the Austrian Grand Prix.

The protest was originally rejected by the stewards at the meeting, but the team persisted and the International Court of Appeal met on Friday to discuss the situation.

BAR believes Raikkonen overtook their driver Olivier Panis illegally under yellow flags and are looking for a clarification in the rules covering that issue.
