    Default Renault Will Race At Valencia


    Renault will race in the European Grand Prix this weekend after the FIA Court of Appeal overturned the team's one-race suspension today.

    The team claimed at today's hearing in Paris that there was no conscious wrongdoing when Fernando Alonso was released from his first pitstop in the Hungarian Grand Prix before his right front wheel was properly attached.

    It also argued that the only people who knew about the error were the mechanics working on that wheel, and that they were unable to inform any team personnel on the pitwall to warn Alonso before the wheel detached.

    Renault conceded in the hearing that it had contravened the rules in releasing Alonso when it was unsafe, but asked that the one-race ban imposed by the race stewards be reconsidered.

    The court upheld Renault's appeal and instead issued a reprimand and imposed a $50,000 fine.

    That's good. I could only imagine the riots over Alonso not getting to drive lol. The more cars on the grid the better IMO
