Ferrari applauded the FIA's International Court of Appeal decision to reject McLaren's case over the results of the Brazilian Grand Prix, labelling the appeal as a 'desperate attempt' to change the race results.
The decision of the ICA to reject the appeal, which the court said was inadmissible, has confirmed Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen as the 2007 world champion, and the Italian squad said in a statement they will now turn their attention to next season.
"Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro is completely satisfied with today's decision of the International Court of Appeal, which confirms the result of the Brazilian Grand Prix, as a consequence of which Kimi Raikkonen won the Formula One Drivers' World Championship," the team stated.
Ferrari CEO Jean Todt further added: "The decision of the ICA finally brings to an end a very intense season, both on and off the track.
"Today, a final and desperate attempt to change the result obtained on the track was rejected. Now, all our efforts are focused on preparing for next season."
