21 June: United States Grand Prix - World Motor Sport Council

In the interests of transparency we have therefore decided to publish the charges faced by each team in their entirety.

Letter to all 7 Michelin shod teams (Renault, McLaren, Toyota, Williams, BAR, Red Bull, Sauber)

Article 151c of the International Sporting Code

You are hereby requested to appear at the forthcoming meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council, which is held in Paris on the 29 June 2005 (FIA - 8 place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris, meeting room "Salle du Comité") at 09:30 hrs to answer charges that, in breach of the above, you committed one of more acts prejudicial to the interests of a competition, namely the 2005 United States Grand Prix and/or to the interests of motor sport generally in that you

failed to ensure that you had a supply of suitable tyres for the race and/or

wrongly refused to allow your cars to start the race and/or

wrongly refused to allow your cars to race, subject to a speed restriction in one corner which was safe for such tyres as you had available and/or

combined with the other teams to make a demonstration damaging to the image of Formula One by pulling into the pits immediately before the start of the race

and that you failed to notify the stewards of your intention not to race, in breach of Article 131 of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations.

A full dossier will be sent to you within 48 hours.

At this hearing you may be assisted by the counsel of your choice.

Should you wish to send us any comments in writing before this meeting, we will make sure that they are circulated to the members of the World Motor Sport Council
