Stewards make decision on Red Bull appeal hearing

Race stewards have made a call on whether or not to progress with Red Bull's appeal for a review of the British Grand Prix penalty against Lewis Hamilton.

Following Thursday's hearing regarding the British Grand Prix penalty handed down to Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, the stewards have dismissed Red Bull's right of review over the penalty.

Red Bull, Mercedes and the stewards met via video conference on Thursday afternoon as the Milton Keynes outfit looked to challenge the ruling.

The Briton took the chequered flag despite being handed a 10-second penalty, a punishment Red Bull believed wasn't harsh enough. As a result Red Bull had to present new evidence in order to convince the race stewards to reconsider the penalty, while Mercedes were also given the opportunity to defend their position.

In the end the stewards decided they will not be revisiting the issue. While Red Bull could take their appeal further, RacingNews365.com understand that the team has no intention of doing so as they will focus their attention on the remainder of the F1 season.
