Renault recently declared their decision to take down the appeal against the penalty advanced to Racing Point. The penalty was given to what seemed to be illegal rear brake ducts o their RP20.

Following the 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone, Renault had announced that they intend to appeal to the stewards’ decision on rear brake ducts on Racing Point’s 2020 car.

Racing Point has been accused of their brake ducts belonging to Mercedes and not of their design. In that regard, the team has been fined 4 million euros and has also been shied of 15 points.

While McLaren and Williams have taken a step back from their stand, avoiding any misunderstanding at the beginning of the season, Ferrari and Racing Point continue to hold their stance.
