Renault to race at Valencia after winning appeal

Renault have had their suspension from this weekendís European Grand Prix overturned after an FIA International Court of Appeal hearing in Paris on Monday.
Renaultís lawyer argued that there had been no conscious wrongdoing on the teamís part and insisted that the misdemeanor warranted no more than a reprimand. According to Renault, the two mechanics who dealt with the errant wheel were unable to inform the pit wall or the driver prior to him leaving the pits.
The Court decided that the penalty was too severe and replaced it with a reprimand and a US$50,000 fine.
Having won their appeal, Renault are now expected to announce a new driver to replace Nelson Piquet. Piquet revealed over the summer break that he is being dropped midway through his second race season with the French team. Renault tester and GP2 star Roman Grosjean has been widely tipped as his successor.
