Mercedes withdraw F1 title appeal as FIA investigates controversial finale

The team, which had already made two unsuccessful protests against the decision which led to Hamilton’s defeat in a last-lap shootout on Sunday, had until Thursday evening to make a final appeal.

Hamilton, the sport’s most successful driver, said over the radio he felt the race had been “manipulated”. Mercedes concluded their statement with messages of congratulations to Verstappen and their own drivers and team. “Lewis, you are the greatest racer in the history of Formula 1 and you drove your heart out for every lap of this incredible season.
