Massa, Alonso, summoned to FIA team orders hearing

(GMM)  Ferrari's race drivers have been summoned by the FIA to the forthcoming disciplinary hearing of the World Motor Sport Council.

That is the claim of the Spanish sports daily AS, which on Friday said both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa must appear either in person in Paris or via video link.

The pair swapped positions during July's German grand prix at Hockenheim, allegedly due to the imposition of an illegal team order.

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali said before leaving Spa-Francorchamps last weekend that he was "sure the World Council will understand our point" on September 8.

But some, including Red Bull's Helmut Marko, are hoping the outcome will be a points loss for the Italian team and its drivers.

"No, I don't think so, we're relaxed," said Alonso last Sunday.

After Wednesday's hearing, it is expected the verdict will be published later that day.

As well as the drivers and legal team, boss Domenicali and team manager Massimo Rivola are also slated to be in attendance at Place de la Concorde.
