Ferrari & Racing Point withdraw appeals in F1’s ‘copying’ row

Ferrari have withdrawn their appeal against Racing Point’s punishment in Formula 1’s ‘copying’ row. The team were docked 15 points 400,000 euros for illegally copying Mercedes’ 2019 brake ducts for use on their car this season. For this year, brake ducts were added to the category of ‘listed parts’ that teams have to design themselves to be regarded as constructors. But it was not illegal last year for teams to share the details of these parts. So, while it was legal for Mercedes to supply the design of their brake ducts to Racing Point last year, stewards decided it was illegal for Racing Point to copy them for use on their 2020 car.
