As anticipated, Ferrari has dropped its appeal of the verdict against Racing Point’s brake ducts, bringing a formal end to the copying case involving the Silverstone-based outfit.
Racing Point will therefore retain its €400,000 penalty handed out by the FIA as well as the withdrawal of 15 Constructors’ championship points.
Ferrari was the last team to remain involved in the appeal process after Renault, McLaren and Williams had previously withdrawn their appeal.

But a resolution reached among the FIA and F1’s ten teams over a new set of rules governing the use of listed and non-listed parts for 2021 led the Scuderia to also terminate its legal proceedings.
Ferrrai released the following statement after Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix:
“In recent weeks, the collaboration between FIA, F1 and the teams has produced a series of acts – amendments to the 2021 technical and sporting regulations, approved by the F1 Commission and the FIA World Motor Sport Council, and technical directives – which clarify the responsibilities of each championship participant in the design of the components of a single-seater and implement specific monitoring procedures to ensure that both the letter and the spirit of the regulations are fully respected.
“Scuderia Ferrari expresses its appreciation for the timeliness with which the FIA and F1 have effectively tackled a fundamental aspect of the DNA of this highly competitive sport.”
