September date for Ferrari at FIA

6:01 am on 4 August 2010

Ferrari have been summoned to appear before Formula One's governing body the FIA on September 8 to answer charges of using team orders to manufacture a German Grand Prix win for Fernando Alonso.

Team orders were banned eight years ago after the infamous incident at the 2002 Austrian Grand Prix when Ferrari instructed race leader Rubens Barrichello to pull over and allow Michael Schumacher to pass and win the race.

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali has insisted that there were no team orders at Hockenheim and that it was Massa's decision to let Alonso past.
