Aug.1 - After the race it was not possible to take a 1.0 litre sample of fuel from car 5. The team was given several opportunities to attempt to remove the required amount of fuel from the tank, however it was only possible to pump 0.3 litres out.

During the hearing in presence of the FIA Technical Delegate and the FIA Technical Director the team principal of Aston Martin stated that there must be 1,44 litres left in the tank, but they are not able to get it out. This figure is calculated using the FFM or injector model.

Therefore Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel has lost his second-place finish and been disqualified from the results of the Hungarian Grand Prix after race officials were unable to take the required fuel sample from his car following the race.

Under the technical regulations, competitors must ensure that a 1.0 litre sample of fuel may be taken from the car at any time during the event – however it was only possible to take 0.3 litres from Vettel’s Aston Martin after Sunday’s race.

The decision means that Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton inherits second place, with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz classified as the final podium finisher in third.

The rest of the top 10 behind Vettel also inherit a place each, with Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen promoted from P11 into the final points paying position of P10.

    I thought it was pretty obvious that where Seb stopped was because he didn't have enough fuel. I wonder what this means in terms of the podium. Will Alonso be promoted to 3rd place...... 🤔

      That sucks, not as much as madra mor apparently does but sucks all the same. Penalise the team not the driver Seb deserved to keep the 2nd place.
      Bottas and Stroll wipe out half the field and get given five-second grid penalties for the next race.

          Setzer take your head out of your arse, it’s pretty bleeding obvious I meant five grid places.
          Maybe as I’m new to the internet you as an expert on here can tell me why you are so qualified to make a comment yourself. My last race was in a Reynard 94d what was your last race in.

    Bloody hell you lot love a good conspiracy theory on here.
    I was going to comment on the fact that if they are still undecided on the driver lineups for next year, then Bottas has only enhanced his claims to being a team player.
    It certainly didn’t do his chances of being offered a new contract any harm, and I can see why Hamilton is so keen to keep him around.
    He’s that mate who always took one for the team by hooking up with the fat chick so you could work on getting one of her hot friends to come home with you.

    Vetel finished the race on his allocated fuel why penalize him? as far as I'm concerned F1 rules are now absolutely spoiling the sport, i will now change to watching Touring cars!!!!!
