Spain's sports federation RFEA has written to the FIA's International Court of Appeal to defend the interests of Fernando Alonso and the forthcoming European grand prix.

According to the Spanish news agency EFE, the letter follows Renault's suspension from the Valencia race for an incident that involved Alonso's wheel falling off in Hungary late last month.

An appeal hearing will be heard in Paris on the morning of August 17, with the verdict the following afternoon to leave less than three days before opening practice at the Valencia street circuit.
