Convinced that a mistake was made while trying to extract the fuel needed to analyze it, the team Aston Martin de F1 appealed the exclusion suffered by its pilot, the German Sebastian Vettel, after Hungarian Grand Prix. The four-time champion finished finished second behind the French Esteban Ocon (Alpine), who achieved his first success in the specialty.
According to calculations made by the British team, Vettel's car's fuel tank finished with 1.74 liters, thus fulfilling the regulatory requirement. However, the International Automobile Federation could not extract the required liter.
“We just have to show the FIA that it was there and that those 300 milliliters are enough for their fuel sample. That is the basis of the claim "added the team-manager.
After crossing the finish line, Vettel could not reach the pit lane and left his car on the track due to a problem with the fuel pump that, presumably, would have prevented the FIA from obtaining the liter of fuel required by the regulations.
