BUDAPEST (AP) – Aston Martin has protested the disqualification of Sebastian Vettel after his second place at the Hungarian Grand Prix, the British Formula 1 racing team announced.
After the spectacular Grand Prix in Hungaroring on 1 August, the team had already announced its intention and thus had 96 hours to make a decision.
According to the technical representative, only 0.3 liters of fuel was found in Vettel’s car after the race was over. However, at least one liter is required. In the announcement, Aston Martin confirmed that, according to its own figures, the car still had 1.74 liters. In addition, there are new signs that were not available at the time of sentencing.
Vettel only lost in the Alpine to sensational winner Esteban Ocon of France. Lewis Hamilton, who finished third with Mercedes, dropped to second due to Vettel’s disqualification. The seven-time world champion from Great Britain took the lead in the overall standings with an eight-point lead over Max Verstappen from Red Bull.
