Aston Martin withdraw Sebastian Vettel appeal over Hungarian GP fuel

Aston Martin have withdrawn their appeal against Sebastian Vettel’s Hungarian GP disqualification, meaning the matter is now closed.

Although the team’s right of review request was denied by stewards earlier this week, the team’s appeal against the decision remained outstanding

However, Aston Martin have now confirmed they are not proceeding with a challenge to the FIA’s International Court of Appeal.

“Having considered our position and having noted the FIA stewards’ verdict that there was clear new evidence of a fuel system failure, we have nonetheless withdrawn our appeal on the basis that we believe doing so outweighs the benefits of it being heard,” said the team in a statement.

The withdrawal of the appeal means the results from the final race before F1’s summer break on July 1 are now official.

Lewis Hamilton’s title lead over Max Verstappen stays at eight points after the Mercedes driver was promoted to second after Vettel’s disqualification.
