Williams won't appeal Brazil disqualification

Despite believing that they have enough data to prove they were within the regulations, they have now decided against appealing.

 A Williams statement to Autosport read: "Following detailed consideration the team has concluded that despite not agreeing with the exclusion and believing it has sufficient evidence with which to successfully contest the ruling, it will not formally appeal the decision as a hearing date is unlikely to be available until after the end of the season, impacting a time when the team wishes to turn its attention to its 2016 campaign.

In real terms, there is nothing to be gained but pride by trying to have it overturned. However I worry what message this sends to the drivers, and even to the FIA, that you could DSQ people seemingly at random without being held to account.
