Red Bull have failed in their bid for Lewis Hamilton's 10-second penalty at the British Grand Prix to be reviewed.

The Red Bull team felt Hamilton's punishment was too lenient after the Mercedes driver crashed with Max Verstappen at 180mph on the opening lap.

Hamilton recovered from the penalty to claim a controversial win at Silverstone, while Verstappen did not score a point after his afternoon ended in the barriers.

On Thursday afternoon, Red Bull presented a crash dossier to the British GP stewards in the hope that Hamilton's punishment would be reviewed.

But the FIA panel ruled that Red Bull's evidence log did not carry enough fresh evidence to warrant a re-trial.

As such, Hamilton's 99th win stands with the world champion heading into this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix just eight points adrift of Verstappen.

Responding to the verdict, Mercedes posted a statement.

The reigning world champions said: "The Mercedes F1 Team welcomes the decision of the stewards to reject Red Bull Racing's right of review.

"In addition to brining this incident to a close, we hope that this decision will mark the end of a concerted attempt by the senior management of Red Bull Racing to tarnish the good name and sporting integrity of Lewis Hamilton, including in the documents submitted for their unsuccessful right of review.

"We now look forward to going racing this weekend and to continuing out hard-fought competition for the 2021 Formula One World Championship."
