Ferrari given Sainz penalty HOPE as FIA name appeal date

Carlos Sainz and Ferrari have been given hope and a deadline after an FIA document was published, calling Ferrari representatives to the stewards for a virtual hearing.

The Spanish driver was given a five-second time penalty for tagging Fernando Alonso into a spin at the Australian Grand Prix restart, taking him out of the points from a promising position.

Sainz was left furious after the race, labelling the penalty the most unfair he had ever seen.

The Ferrari driver may have had a point, with no penalties awarded to Logan Sargeant and Pierre Gasly for their roles in equally notable incidents at the race restart on lap 57.

The Scuderia have now been given hope after a right of review resulted in Sainz and Ferrari's representatives being summoned to the stewards on 18 August.

Carlos Sainz's five-second time penalty meant that Ferrari left Melbourne empty-handed
