The Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris has set November 24 as the date to hear Flavio Briatore's case against the FIA.

In the wake of the crash-gate affair, former Renault boss Briatore, 59, is seeking up to a million euros in damages plus the cancellation of his lifetime exclusion from motor racing.

Wire reports said the Italian's lawyers addressed the court on Monday, and were granted a future hearing by the judge.

French carmaker Renault's F1 team, as well as the sport's governing body, have not commented on Briatore's legal action.
