Mercedes has filed two appeals against Max Verstapen’s victory over Lewis Hamilton at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday.
Mercedes is taking part in the safety car process which has resulted in Worstapen leaving Hamilton behind in a crazy final lap to win the World Championship.
“Mercedes has protested against the ‘classification established at the end of the competition’ over alleged violations of sections 48.8 and 48.12 of the FIA Sporting Regulations,” Formula One tweeted.

Hamilton was heading for victory, his eighth world title appearing in the bag.
Four laps from the end, however, Nicholas Latifi crashed his Williams, bringing out the safety car and encouraging Verstapen to dig for fresh tires. When racing resumed for the 58th and the closing lap Worstapen overtook Hamilton for the checkered flag and title.
