McLaren has asked to be heard at next week's diffuser appeal hearing in Paris

McLaren has asked to be heard at next week's diffuser appeal hearing in Paris.

Next Tuesday morning at the FIA International Court of Appeal, F1's governing body will hear cases put forward by Ferrari, Renault and Red Bull against the legality of the cars of the so-nicknamed 'diffuser gang'.

In Australia, the three aforementioned teams lodged with the stewards formal protests about the controversial aerodynamic devices at the rear of the Brawn, Williams and Toyota cars.

BMW-Sauber followed suit with a protest in Malaysia last weekend. In both protest cases, the stewards cleared the cars to race, causing the plaintiffs to exercise their right to appeal.

The FIA released further information about the forthcoming appeal hearing on Wednesday, including the request of the McLaren team to "be heard" by the court.

Following the Tuesday hearing, the court's verdict is expected to be published the following afternoon.
