The stewards have decided to uphold Sergio Perez's five place grid penalty for this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix.
Perez was deemed to be the guilty party in a last lap collision with Felipe Massa in Canada.
Force India asked the FIA to look at the incident again due to 'new elements', thought to be Perez's side of the story - which he could not give in Canada as he was in hospital - plus further telemetry.
"The driver of car 11 [Perez] contended that the new elements(s) evidenced that in defending his position he was exercising his right, under Article 20.4 of the 2014 Formula One Sporting Regulations, to use the whole track," read the stewards' statement.
"However, it was clear to the Stewards that the defence of his position occurred in the braking area. Article 20.4 specifically states that any right to defend by using the whole track must occur prior to any braking area.
"Accordingly the driver of Car 11 was not entitled to defend his position in the manner he did."
