Ferrari have announced that they will not be appealing the $100,000 fine which was handed out by FIA race stewards following the German Grand Prix, with the Scuderia having been found guilty of team orders.
Team orders have been banned in the sport since 2003, ironically due to the public outrage which followed the previous year’s Austrian Grand Prix, when Ferrari driver and race leader Rubens Barrichello was instructed to slow for Michael Schumacher to pass in the final stages.
“First and foremost, I want to congratulate the team on this fantastic result, which is down to all the work undertaken with so much effort, ability and passion by everyone, both at the track and in Maranello, day after day,” Team Principal Stefano Domenicali said upon returning from Race Control on Sunday evening.
“Already, over the past few races, we have seen that the performance level of our car has improved and finally today, we reaped the rewards.
“As for the stewards’ decision given after the race, in the interests of the sport we have decided not to go through a procedure of appealing against it, confident that the World Council will know how to evaluate the overall facts correctly.”
Stefano’s final comment relates to the FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) in Paris, to which the matter now goes for further examination.
