Mercedes appeals stewards decision

The Mercedes GP team has decided to appeal the decision to penalise Michael Schumacher in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Schumacher lost his sixth-place finish after illegally overtaking Ferrari's Fernando Alonso on the last corner of the last lap of the race.

The German was given a post-race drive-through which translated into a 20-second penalty that dropped him from sixth to 12th position.

Mercedes, however, has appealed the decision, which will now be handled by the FIA's Court of Appeal.

The FIA said the appeal is strictly against the decision, not the penalty itself as drive-throughs cannot be appealed.
