Rossi withdraws penalty appeal
No further action is to be taken following the Sepang clash
VALENTINO Rossi has withdrawn his appeal which he filed at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) over the Sepang clash.
Rossi was given 3 penalty points following an incident with Marc Marquez at the Malaysian Grand Prix in October.
In his appeal to the CAS, Rossi asked for the annulment of the penalty, or at least a reduction from 3 points to 1, but it was declined.
A statement from CAS read:
'On 5 November 2015, the Sole Arbitrator appointed by mutual agreement of the parties, Prof. Ulrich Haas (Germany), dismissed Valentino Rossi’s request to stay the execution of the challenged decision.
'The Sole Arbitrator found that the conditions to grant the stay were not met, and accordingly, Valentino Rossi began the Valencia race from the last grid position.
'Mr Rossi has now informed the CAS that he does not wish to continue with his appeal. Accordingly, the arbitration procedure has been terminated and the FIM decision will continue to remain in force.'
No further action is to be taken.
