Lorenzo's request for intervention in Rossi's CAS appeal is rejected

The CAS arbitration is to continue between Rossi and the FIM only

JORGE Lorenzo's request for intervention in Valentino Rossi's appeal has been rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. 

Last week it was announced that Italian rider Rossi had taken the FIM to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after they penalised him for a clash with Marc Marquez in Malaysia. 

It now transpires that Rossi's Movistar Yamaha team-mate filed a 'Request for Intervention' to partake in Rossi's appeal yesterday, however his intentions have not yet been voiced.

The CAS statement regarding Lorenzo is as follows: 'Earlier today, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rejected a Request for Intervention filed by the Spanish MotoGP rider, Jorge Lorenzo.

'On 2 November 2015, lawyers acting for Jorge Lorenzo filed a Request for Intervention in order to be able to participate on his behalf in the CAS arbitration between Valentino Rossi and the FIM. This afternoon, the CAS informed the parties that Mr Lorenzo’s request was denied. Accordingly, the CAS arbitration will continue between Valentino Rossi and the FIM only.

'The decision on Mr Rossi’s request to stay the execution of the FIM Steward’s decision is still expected to be issued no later than 6 November 2015.'
