Sauber drop appeal against disqualification

Sauber's disqualification will stand

Sauber have announced that they are not to appeal their team’s disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix.

Both their drivers had done well to get into points-scoring positions, but the stewards have since ruled that the C30′s rear wing contained illegal sections. It has been confirmed that a radius on the upper rear wing element was several millimetres outside of the regulations.

Despite claiming that Kobayashi and Perez gained no advantage from the rear wing, Sauber have decided to go with the stewards’ decision. Technical director James Key stated:

"It did not bring us any performance advantage, but the fact is that it was a 
deviation from the regulations. We take note of the stewards' decision.

We have since found that there was an error in the checking process for the 
relevant dimension on this component. We have already put measures in place to 
ensure that nothing of this kind occurs again in the future."
