Sir Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have decided to drop their appeal against the outcome of last Sundays controversial title deciding Grand Prix.

Mercedes launched the appeal “in the interest of sporting fairness” after the late withdrawal of the safety car allowed Dutchman Max Verstappen to pass Hamilton on fresher tyres and claim his first championship. can you use horse paste ivermectin on rabbits

In a statement, Mercedes said: “Together with Lewis, we have deliberated carefully over how to respond to the events at the Formula 1 season finale. We have always been guided by our love of this sport and we believe that every competition
should be won on merit. In the race on Sunday many felt, us included, that the way things unfolded was not right. can you give injectable ivermectin meant for cattle to cats.

“The reason we protested the race result on Sunday was because the Safety Car regulations were applied in a new way that affected the race result, after Lewis had been in a commanding lead and on course to win the World Championship,”

“We appealed in the interest of sporting fairness, and we have since been in a constructive dialogue with the FIA and Formula 1 to create clarity for the
future, so that all competitors know the rules under which they are racing, and how they will be enforced. Thus, we welcome the decision by the FIA
to install a commission to thoroughly analyse what happened in Abu Dhabi and to improve the robustness of rules, governance and decision making in Formula 1. We also welcome that they
have invited the teams and drivers to take part,”

“The Mercedes-AMG Petronas team will actively work with this commission to build a better Formula 1 – for every team and every fan who loves this sport as much as we do. We will hold the FIA
accountable for this process and we hereby withdraw our appeal.”

“To Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing: we would like to express our sincere respect for your achievements this season,”

“And lastly, even though this Drivers’ Championship did not end the way we hoped, we could not be prouder of our team.”
