Vettel facing disqualification from Hungarian Grand Prix

Vettel facing disqualification from Hungarian Grand Prix

Aston Martin driver Sebastian Vettel is in danger of being disqualified from the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Vettel secured a fine second place behind Alpine's Esteban Ocon after managing to avoid the lap-one carnage that unfolded at the Hungaroring.

But the FIA has confirmed it has been unable to retrieve the required sample of fuel from Vettel's AMR21 following the 70 laps.

Vettel was forced to stop on track at the end of the race, seemingly as he was unable to make it back to the pits as he did not have enough fuel.

A report from FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer reads: "After the race it was checked on car number 05 whether a 1.0-litre sample of fuel could be taken from the car.

"It was possible to take only a 0.3-litre sample following the procedures layed [sic] out in Article 6.6.4 of the 2021 Formula One Technical Regulations.

"Therefore I am referring this matter to the stewards for their consideration, as this is not in compliance with Article 6.6.2 of the 2021 Formula One Technical Regulations."

The relevant articles in the technical regulations refer to fuel sampling and testing.

A team representative has been summoned to explain to the stewards the issue as an alleged breach of article 6.6.2, that a one-litre sample of fuel could not be taken.

Under such circumstances, a competitor is normally disqualified.
