Mercedes protests rejected by Formula 1 stewards as title goes to Max Verstappen

BBC Sport says Formula 1 officials rejected two protests by Mercedes against the result of the controversial title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with the team set to appeal against one of those decisions.

Max Verstappen passed Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes for the victory that won him the title after a late safety car.

Mercedes argued race director Michael Masi did not apply the rules correctly.

The team have lodged an intention to appeal against the decision relating to restarting the race for the final lap.

Officials said other rules gave Masi the power to act as he did.

Mercedes’ second appeal was over Red Bull’s Verstappen nosing ahead of Hamilton a number of times on the lap before the restart. They are not intending to appeal against that matter.
