Carlin motorsport and their Formula Renault 3.5 driver JeanEric Vergne have successfully won their appeal following a time penalty handed to the Frenchman in Race Two at Monza back in May.

The win was originally handed to fellow Red Bull junior driver Daniel Ricciardo, who finished second on track, after Vergne cut the Roggia chicane while fending off the Australian.

However, the Court of Appeal of the CSAI (Italian Motorsports Commission) have decided to overturn that decision.

Vergne was demoted to third after a 10 second time penalty, behind Ricciardo and Alexander Rossi, but the amended results have seen Vergne reclaim those ten vital points, meaning he is now just 24 points behind Carlin team mate Robert Wickens in the championship standings.
