Ferrari drops Mexico penalty appeal plan

Ferrari will not appeal the decision against Sebastian Vettel's Mexico Grand Prix penalty.

The German was promoted to third after the race following a penalty for Max Verstappen.

However, Vettel later received his own penalty for blocking Daniel Ricciardo under braking, meaning he was eventually classified fifth.

In Brazil, Ferrari asked for a review of the penalty after they had become aware of a "number of new elements" since.

The FIA dismissed that and Ferrari expressed an interest in appealing, as is their right under the international sporting code.

The Italian team were clear that their championship standing would not change if the appeal was successful, and they were doing it for "clarification".

Ferrari have since decided not to appeal.
