Mercedes may continue to use the much-discussed DAS system this weekend during the Austrian Grand Prix. The stewards in Formula 1 rejected the protest from Red Bull Racing on Saturday.

Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas used the so-called Dual Axes Steering system on Friday during the first two free practice sessions, which allows them to change the position of the front wheels with their steering wheel.

In this way, the position of the car can be adjusted for straights and curves. Red Bull ruled that Mercedes broke the rules with the DAS system and appealed, but the team of Max Verstappen was not successful.

"DAS could simply be declared illegal if it were not part of the steering system. But the stewards conclude that this is the case," said a statement. "Mercedes therefore meets the requirements regarding the suspension and the aerodynamic system."
