LONDON (Reuters) – Mercedes will not appeal the outcome of last Sunday’s season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is Formula One world champion, the team said in a statement on Thursday.

Verstappen, 24, took the title after overtaking Mercedes’ seven-times world champion Lewis Hamilton on the last lap of the race following a safety car period. The Dutch driver will collect his trophy in Paris on Thursday.
