Giancarlo Fisichella will receive the winner's trophy for the Brazilian Grand Prix at a short ceremony in San Marino on Friday morning. Fisichella was announced the winner of Interlagos after an investigation into the original result by the FIA.

The event will take place on the start/finish line at the Imola circuit, where McLaren team principal Ron Dennis and driver Kimi Raikkonen will hand over the trophy to Fisichella and Jordan team principal Eddie Jordan.

"I am very grateful to the FIA for examining the results in such detail and acknowledging that the victory is Giancarlo's," Jordan said last week after the FIA decision.

McLaren were content to abide by the amended result: "I'm sure that there will be more wins for West McLaren Mercedes and myself in the future so I'm not too disappointed," said Raikkonen, who lost his second GP win to Fisichella.
