Vettel's last Canada hope gone as Ferrari ditch appeal

Vettel's last Canada hope gone as Ferrari ditch appeal

Ferrari have opted not to move forward with an appeal against the decision to penalise Sebastian Vettel in the Canadian Grand Prix, according to multiple reports. The German lost victory in Montreal to Lewis Hamilton after re-joining the circuit unsafely ahead of the Mercedes driver.

Vettel ran wide at Turn 4, swerving onto the grass and then back onto the track, before finally recollecting his car.

Hamilton had to jab on the brakes to avoid a collision, and complained that Vettel was guilty of re-joining unsafely.

Vettel showed his anger by putting the P2 sign that should have been in front of his car in front of Hamilton's instead, while calling the stewards "blind".

The German led much of the race, having secured pole position and Ferrari clearly felt aggrieved, with team principal Mattia Binotto defiantly declaring: "We won."

Ferrari lodged an intention to appeal, giving them 96 hours in order to gain more evidence.

However, both the Daily Mail and Motorsport-Magazin have reported that Ferrari have written to the FIA to inform them that they will not press ahead, meaning the results are now set in stone.
