Barrichello confirmed the winner of Austrian GP

I just heard on Sports Tonight that the FIA will give Barrichello the win in Austria, and Michael second place. Thus Michael would lose 4 points.
These are the points standing after FIA's decision

1 Michael Schumacher 66
2 Ralf Schumacher 27
= Juan Pablo Montoya 27
4 David Coulthard 26
5 Rubens Barrichello 20
6 Jenson Button 8
7 Kimi Räikkönen 7
8 Giancarlo Fisichella 6
9 Nick Heidfeld 5
10 Jarno Trulli 4
11 Felipe Massa 3
= Eddie Irvine 3
13 Mark Webber 2
= Heinz-Harald Frentzen 2
= Mika Salo 2

Heh, why don't they go back through history and change the results of all the races where team orders came into play....

Seems strange they announce this before later in the month when ferrari are sposed to appear before the world council though.....

Here's betting that their appeal won't be upheld... not that it really matters schuey should wrap up the title within the next few races anyway with or without those 4 points

I suspect that this announcement is a tad premature. There would also appear to be no way the FIA rules for this to happen but this is F1 too!!
