“Renault DP World F1 Team confirms that it has requested to withdraw the appeals lodged against the stewards’ decisions in relation to BWT Racing Point F1 Team’s brake ducts,” the team said in a statement.
“Beyond the decisions, the matters at issue were vital to the integrity of Formula One, both during the current season and in the future.
“However, intensive and constructive work between the FIA, Renault DP World F1 Team and all Formula One stakeholders has led to concrete progress in safeguarding the originality in the sport by way of amendments to the Sporting and Technical Regulations planned for the 2021 racing season, confirming the requirements to qualify as a Constructor.
“The controversy of the start of this season should be put behind us, as we need to focus on the remainder of an intense and unique Championship.”
Renault, along with Ferrari and Racing Point, appealed the stewards’ verdict.
It was expected that the teams would use the forthcoming hearing to challenge not just the punishment — which allows Racing Point to continue with the brake ducts on its cars — but also the limited scope of the investigation, which did not examine other areas of the car that teams have suggested may be illegal.
