Mercedes submit their plan to appeal AGAIN after the FIA rejected initial protest over final lap safety car decision in Abu Dhabi… and Toto Wolff could take this dispute to COURT after Max Verstappen pipped Lewis Hamilton to the F1 title

Mercedes were ‘discussing’ taking fight for the world championship to court on Sunday night in the belief that Lewis Hamilton was robbed of a record eighth title in the deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. That was after their initial protest into the safety car incident that cost Hamilton victory was rejected by the stewards four hours after the end of the race. Mercedes now have 96 hours to confirm whether they will press ahead with the appeal. You have to look at this championship across the 22 races and Max has been truly outstanding this year. ‘It wouldn’t be a surprise if they were to appeal but the race director made his position clear, the stewards made their position clear, and the ruling is very clear. They got the race going again and Max had to make it count.
