After the qualifying session in Melbourne, the Williams F1 team lodged two protests against Scuderia Ferrari and Red Bull Racing over a possible technical infringement near the front edge of the sidepods in both F60 and RB5 single seaters. The race stewards therefore had a meeting for several hours in order to discuss the matter, but in the end, Williams decided to withdraw its protests ‘in the interests of the sport’.

With Williams’ appeal withdrawn, Saturday’s qualifying classification has now been made official, with the only change on the grid being the demotion to the last positions of the two Toyotas following their flexible wing issue.
