Racing Point was handed a 15-point constructors' penalty and a €400,000 fine for running illegal rear brake ducts after the FIA ruled the part was predominantly designed by Mercedes and not the Silverstone based team.
However, with each position in the constructors' standings worth tens of millions of dollars, some teams have taken the view the penalty is a token gesture.
Added to the frustration is the fact Racing Point is allowed to run the brake ducts for the remainder of the season.
The five teams involved have a further 96 hours to determine whether they will now formally appeal.
As McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl told Sky Sports F1: "We are part of a legal process now, so I don't want to comment further on it.
"In the end, we put in our intention to appeal yesterday night to buy us some time, to look through further and decide the next steps on our side."
He told Sky Sports F1: "My take is that the good news from the judgment is that the car is completely legal from a technical perspective so we can continue to run the brake ducts. It's just a matter of the process which is in the sporting regulations.
"We read the sporting regulations, there was nothing specific in there that says we couldn't do what we did. Other teams have done exactly the same, more than what we did in a way, so it's a bit bewildering."
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff voiced his support for Racing Point and his belief the team has done nothing wrong. The team has elected not to join the appeal.
What do you think?
All teams copy each other and have dedicated photographers to capture minute detail.. Teams just playing games with the regulations Zzzzz
