Formula One’s governing body, the FIA, said on Monday that it would not review Sebastian Vettel’s disqualification from the Hungarian Grand Prix because it rejected his Aston Martin (Aston Martin).The team’s appeal. A week ago, the German was disqualified from second place due to technical problems because his car was deemed to be low on fuel after the race. The race commissioner stated that the evidence provided by the team tried to prove that they had evidence of a technical problem related to the 1.0-liter fuel sample required after the race, and that it was not worth reviewing the decision. They declined the review.
The race commissioners found that “for the assessment of whether or not the 1-litre requirement was broken, it does not make a difference why there was less than 1 litre.”
They also found “it shall be no defence to claim that no performance advantage was obtained and that “in order to be able to affirm a ‘relevant’ fact, Aston Martin would have had to present facts that actually more than 1 litre of fuel was remaining. The explanation why this requirement could not be met is not relevant to the decision as to whether a breach of the regulations has occurred.”
As a result of Vettel missing a second season podium world champion Lewis Hamilton was awarded second place and the Mercedes star now has an eight-point lead over Max Verstappen in the title race.
