F1: Aston Martin denied right of review of Vettel’s Hungarian GP disqualification

Last updated on Less than a minute agoLess than a minute ago.From the section Formula 1. Vettel was disqualified from second place after his car was found to have less than the mandatory one litre of fuel required for post-race testing. Aston submitted evidence showing that the lack of fuel was caused by a fuel-system failure that led to a leak. But stewards ruled that this was “not relevant” to the disqualification. The stewards from the race meeting were reconvened on Monday to assess Aston Martin’s new evidence. Stewards accepted that the evidence of a leak somewhere in the fuel system satisfied the requirement for “new” evidence, which is one of four separate criteria a team must satisfy for a right of review of the decision to be granted.
