Ferrari Appeal: Irvine's Reaction.

Eddie Irvine was understandably satisfied with the FIA's decision to re-instate him as winner of the Malaysian Grand Prix, following an appeal against initial exclusion for illegal bodywork.



"They were the longest four hours of my life," he said after having to wait for the verdict to be announced, "but never once did I think that Ferrari would do anything illegal to gain an advantage. That doesn't mean that I wasn't worried, because you never know what might happen.



"This is great news although, after Ferrari put the case to the appeal court, I felt confident we had proved our point. This is the best possible result for Ferrari, for me, and for the sport of Formula One."



Irvine now goes to the final race of the season - at Suzuka in Japan - with a four point advantage over McLaren's Mika Hakkinen. Ferrari also regains the lead in the constructors' series.



The Finn merely confirmed that his focus was on Japan, and the effort required to retain his world crown.



"The events of last week are now behind us, and I am, as always, focusing on the next race. I will do my best to win."
