Mercedes have decided not to pursue their appeal against the results of the title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Mercedes said they “welcomed” the move and would “hold the FIA accountable”.
Max Verstappen’s Red Bull overtook Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on the last lap to clinch the drivers’ title.
Mercedes had two protests rejected by F1 officials on Sunday, with the team arguing race director Michael Masi did not apply the rules correctly.
