They were on fairly shaky ground with their arguments and ignoring FIA instructions issued during the race was always going to go down like a lead balloon.
Time to move on for both parties.
I never understood this argument by some fans that Horner appears so confident, so they must have case they can win and hence they must be in right. This totally dismissing the competence of stewards, FIA technical delegates, FIA engineers and Race Control in the serious matter of disqualification in the first place.
That was PR management at work.
Redbull is not some magical kingdom which will get everything right every time. Even when they appear to be like that.
It was clear from the beginning that they were in deep $#!t with this judgement. They are lucky that they have only had DSQ result. There were grounds for FIA to punish them harder.
In the end, right decision has been made. This judgement is good for F1 and good for FIA.
Decision as serious as disqualification is not something that FIA and stewards take lightly. And it proved that they were indeed in the right with the whole fuel sensor issue. This should put an end to that matter. So we now know that FIA will continue to stick to their sensors and backup method and no team will dare to do anything different.
