Red Bull requested a hearing from the International Automobile Federation, which was held this Thursday. The governing body said the Austrian team had not provided any "New, significant and relevant element" that could justify a review of the decision made during the race.

Red Bull presented GPS data to show that Hamilton's overtaking at turn nine should be more severely penalized. However, this was not enough to impose a new sanction for the British star who can claim a 100th victory on Sunday.

After knowing the measure, Mercedes released a press release in which it states that it hopes that "This decision marks the end of a concerted attempt by Red Bull Racing's top management to tarnish Lewis Hamilton's good name and sporting integrity, even in the documents submitted for his failed right of review."
