Appeal court confirms Raikkonen as F1 champion

LONDON, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was confirmed as Formula One world champion on Friday after a court rejected a McLaren appeal that could have handed Lewis Hamilton the title instead.

The governing International Automobile Federation's (FIA) independent court of appeal, whose four judges met in London for the hearing on Thursday, said in a statement that McLaren's appeal was inadmissible.

Dammit, I had the over/under that Brian France was somehow involved and trying to get Dale Earnhardt Jr. somehow involved so he would finally end up as champion of something.

Glad this is over and we can now start worrying over next year's political intrigue.

Although I am somewhat disappointed that bernie won't be able to make good on his threat.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Sweet, I really wanted Kimi to stay champion! Now next year McLaren will be able to start fresh without Alonso and hopefully Hamilton will become champion!
