The International Court of Appeal met in Paris on 1 June 2001 in order to examine the appeal brought by the Royal Automobile Club - Motor Sports Association (MSA - United Kingdom) on behalf of the team Lucky Strike Reynard British American Racing Honda (British licence-holder) against the decision of the Stewards of the 2001 Formula One Austrian Grand Prix (document number 44 - rejection of the protest lodged by the team Lucky Strike Reynard British American Racing Honda against car number 17 - Kimi Räikkönen, Red Bull Sauber Petronas - for alleged overtaking under yellow flags).

Having listened to the explanations of all the parties involved and examined the various documents and other evidence, the Court rejected the appeal and decided to confirm the Stewards' decision (document number 44) of the 2001 Formula One Austrian Grand Prix.

The results of this event are therefore final.

The International Court of Appeal was presided over by Mr. Hervé de Liedekerke (Belgium) and was composed of Messrs. Xavier Conesa Ybran (Spain), Vassilis Koussis (Greece) and Reginald Redmond (Ireland).
