This is a statement from Nick Fry, Chief Executive Officer of B*A*R Honda in relation to the ruling of the FIA International Court of Appeal, 5 May 2005:

"B*A*R Honda is appalled at the decision of the FIA International Court of Appeal and asserts that the judgement is contrary to all of the evidence heard yesterday. The team proved that it complied with the current regulations and the FIA now acknowledges that the regulations are unclear."

"We repeat that at no time did B*A*R Honda run underweight at the San Marino Grand Prix and this was also unchallenged by the FIA."

"While the International Court of Appeal rejected the FIA's original accusations of fraud and deception, B*A*R Honda says that this penalty is wholly and grossly disproportionate."

"The team is advised by its legal counsel that the judgement is plainly wrong based on the evidence presented and it is currently examining its options."
