07/29/09 (GMM) Renault has made official its appeal against the Hungarian GP stewards' decision to ban the team from the forthcoming European grand prix.
Within one hour of the stewards' decision on Sunday evening, the French team lodged a 'notice of intention to appeal' with the FIA, together with the necessary deposit of 6000 euros.
"The FIA is hereby authorized to use this deposit as the fee for this appeal in compliance with the rules of the FIA International Court of Appeal," Renault said.
The formal appeal was lodged for Renault on behalf of the French motor racing federation the FFSA.
The detailed grounds of the appeal must now be lodged with the FIA within 8 days of the stewards' decision.
The Court of Appeal is yet to set a date for the hearing, which will take place in Paris.
