Toro Rosso have failed in their bid to overturn a penalty imposed on Tonio Liuzzi after the Japanese Grand Prix.
Sutil was promoted to eighth place after Liuzzi's penalty
It means Spyker and driver Adrian Sutil retain their maiden point won from the rain-hit race at Fuji on 30 September.
Toro Rosso initially celebrated what they thought was their first point of the season when Liuzzi finished eighth.
But he was hit with a 25-second penalty for apparently overtaking under yellow flag conditions on lap 55 - a sanction which dropped him out of the points.
Toro Rosso appealed, but after a hearing of the motorsport's Court of Appeal in Paris, the decision has today been upheld.
A statement from world governing body, the FIA, read: "Having heard the explanations of both parties and having examined the various documents and other evidence, the Court confirmed the decision of the stewards."
