Flavio Briatore will contest his lifetime ban from the FIA in late November, a trial that could have potential implications on his role at Queens Park Rangers.

Briatore was given a life-time ban from Formula One on Monday September 21, and had remained fairly tight-lipped on his response until recently.

The Football League sought a response from Mr Briatore before deciding his future within the sport and as a director of Queens Park Rangers - and he has now chosen to contest his F1 punishment.

He is appealing his ban primarily on the basis that correct proceedings weren't followed in issuing his hearing his trial and issuing his punishment.

Briatore said: 'In this case, the FIA has been used as a tool to exact vengeance on behalf of one man. This decision is a legal absurdity and I have every confidence that the French courts will resolve the matter justly and impartially.'

The date has now been set for his appeal to be heard on Tuesday November 24.
