Ferrari will not formally appeal the sanction that denied Sebastian Vettel victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, sources said Thursday, but the Italian team could still seek a review of the decision by presenting new evidence.
The deadline for the Formula One team to file a formal protest is Thursday night, 96 hours after the end of the race in Montreal.
A Ferrari spokeswoman said they are still working on collecting evidence, so he could not confirm what action they will take.
A source from the International Automobile Federation (FIA) told Reuters that Ferrari will not make a formal appeal.
The Daily Mail previously reported that Ferrari director Mattia Binotto had written to the FIA to announce that the team would not protest the five-second penalty applied to Vettel after the race.
