” After Sebastian Vettels drive to second put on the road in the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday August 1st, he was disqualified from the outcomes when a 1.0-litre sample of fuel was not able to be taken from his car after the race (a requirement as set out in the FIA Formula One Technical Regulations),” the team stated.
As an outcome, the stewards disqualified Vettel from 2nd with Aston Martin immediately verifying their intent to appeal. That provided 96 hours to choose whether to take it even more.
In addition the team have actually also asked for a right of evaluation – a somewhat different procedure that will also look for to reverse the choice.
The four-time world champ stopped out on track after crossing the line behind shock winner Esteban Ocon and when the car returned to the pits, the FIA were unable to draw out the needed 1.0 litre fuel sample.
Aston Martin have decided to follow through with their appeal against Sebastian Vettels disqualification from second location in the Hungarian Grand Prix.
” There was and is no tip that Vettels Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team AMR21 automobile gained from an efficiency advantage from the alleged regulative breach, or that it was intentional.
The matter will now be brought prior to the Hungarian Grand Prix stewards.
On Thursday night, the group released a declaration stating their information revealed there was enough fuel left in the cars and truck while they had “discovered considerable new proof” appropriate to the charge and would for that reason continue with the appeal.
” Since the teams data showed that there was more than 1.0 litre of fuel in the cars and truck after the race– 1.74 litres according to the information– the team instantly reserved its right to appeal, and has actually asked for a right of evaluation alongside the appeal treatment, as an outcome of having discovered considerable new proof appropriate to the sanction which was not available to it at the time of the FIA stewards choice.”
