Ferrari will not appeal against penalty

Hamilton and Vettel

Ferrari will not appeal against the penalty that cost Sebastian Vettel victory in the Canadian Grand Prix.

The German won on track but was penalised five seconds for dangerous driving, which handed victory to Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton.

Ferrari said they would appeal against the decision but BBC Sport has learned that on Thursday they told governing body the FIA they would withdraw it.

Ferrari say they are “still working on collecting evidence” on the incident.
