During subsequent checks, it turned out that it was not possible to get 1.0 liter of gasoline out of the Vettel car, but only 0.3 liters. According to the regulations, one liter is the minimum to check if the gasoline meets all the requirements.
Therefore, the Aston Martin driver has been removed from the results. Lewis Hamilton climbs to second place, Carlos Sainz ‘finishes’ third in Budapest. Hamilton therefore takes three more points in the battle for the world title.
Max Verstappen climbs from 10th place to 9th and gets an extra point. Hamilton’s lead over the Dutchman in the World Cup position is now eight points, instead of six.
