The outcome of Ferrari's legal action against the FIA, to be heard in a Paris court on Tuesday, will not be known immediately.

A spokesman confirmed that the Italian team felt compelled to quickly apply for the injunction against next year's budget cap regulations.

"Teams have to register (for the 2010 season) between May 22 and 29, and must therefore accept the new regulations.

"Yet, this rule runs totally contrary to the pledges that have been made to Ferrari in the past," Emmanuel Gaillard, one of Ferrari's lawyers, told the news agency AFP.

The case is set to be heard in Paris' Tribunal de Grande Instance, presided over by three judges.

But Germany's Auto Motor und Sport claims that the verdict will not be announced on Tuesday.

Citing a court spokesman, the publication said the judges will retire to examine the arguments and then declare the outcome some days later.
