Earlier this morning, Toyota Motorsport has issued a statement saying that their appeal against the stewards’ decision in Australia to penalise their driver, Jarno Trulli, ‘would serve no benefit‘.

Therefore, considering Article 152, paragraph 5 of the FIA International Sporting Code which states that drive-through penalties cannot be appealed, the Japanese manufacturer has decided to drop its action.

The Toyota statement read:

“Having considered recent judgments of the International Court of Appeal and referring to the Sporting Code, it is believed that any appeal will be rejected on a procedural point such as that defined under article 152, paragraph 5 of the International Sporting Code.

“Based on this, Toyota Motorsport has decided that it would serve no benefit to pursue this course of action.”

Update: Jarno Trulli’s Melbourne penalty scrapped, Hamilton and McLaren-Mercedes excluded from the 2009 Australian Grand Prix
