Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa will address Wednesday's FIA disciplinary hearing by video link.

It emerged last week that the pair, accused of obeying illegal team orders by swapping places at Hockenheim in July, had been summoned to the World Motor Sport Council session in Paris. Reports indicated that the pair may appear in person or by video, probably from a location within Italy.

An article in the British newspaper Daily Telegraph, confirmed by Ferrari, said Alonso and Massa will be available to the FIA by video. After Wednesday's hearing, it is expected the verdict will be published later that day.

Team boss Domenicali and team manager Massimo Rivola, alongside the obligatory lawyers, will be be in attendance at the Place de la Concorde.
