Aston Martin FINALLY concede defeat in their attempt to overturn Sebastian Vettel’s disqualification from the Hungarian Grand Prix, as Lewis Hamilton keeps hold of second place and key points

Aston Martin have officially dropped their appeal against Sebastian Vettel’s disqualification from the Hungarian Grand Prix. Vettel finished second in Budapest following a chaotic, incident-filled race, but his podium place was wiped out after the FIA failed to extract the required fuel sample. A statement from Aston Martin said they have withdrawn their appeal ‘on the basis that we believe doing so outweighs the benefits of it being heard’. He was unable to keep his runner-up place with the FIA not able to take the mandatory one-litre sample after the race. As a result, Vettel missed out on the 18 points in the drivers’ and constructors’ championships, seeing him fall into 12th spot and Aston Martin drop to seventh.
