Williams team decided not to take legal action after Felipe Massa’s exclusion from the Brazilian Grand Prix.


Massa was excluded after stewards found that temperature of right rear tyre on his car was above maximum permitted temperature before the start of the race. Brazilian driver won eighth place at Interlagos, but now he lost points.


Williams immediately declared intention to challenge the verdict, but after couple of days changed its mind as the matter is not worth, given the costs of the process and the fact that this exclusion is not affecting their place in championship standings.


“We will not formally appeal the decision as a hearing date is unlikely to be available until after the end of the season impacting a time when the team wishes to turn its attention to its 2016 campaign. Given the financial climate of the sport, and the fact that the decision does not impact the team’s constructors’ championship position, it has been decided that this would be an unnecessary cost to endure,” was said in Williams’ statement.
