Hamilton to attend appeal hearing

Published 21/09/2008

Lewis Hamilton will attend tomorrow's (Monday) International Court of Appeal hearing in a bid to take a decisive stride towards this season's Formula One world title.

McLaren have taken the decision that Hamilton will put forward his case in front of the four appeal judges at the FIA's headquarters on the Place de la Concorde in Paris

Controversy ensued when the stewards charged Hamilton with cutting the Bus Stop chicane on lap 42 of the 44-lap race, so gaining an advantage on the leader at the time, Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

Hamilton promptly handed the lead back to Raikkonen, only to then slipstream the Finn into the following La Source hairpin and claim top spot.
