The weekend ends in the most bitter way possible Sebastian Vettel in Hungary. The German Aston Martin driver, who finished second at the finish line at the end of a confused and incredible race, was indeed ousted from the order of arrival of the Hungaroring race. Vettel’s sentence was marked by article 6.6.2 of the Formula 1 technical regulations. According to this point, each car at the end of the race must be able to supply the Stewards with a sample of at least one liter of fuel, in order to that the commissioners can analyze it. From Vettel’s car, however, it was only possible to extract 0.3 liters.
The ouster of the four-time world champion from the order of arrival of the Grand Prix obviously has serious consequences on this race but also – and above all – on the world ranking. Lewis Hamilton climbs to second place in the Hungarian GP, followed by Carlos Sainz in third. For the Ferrari driver, therefore, comes the second podium of the season after that of Monte-Carlo. From a championship point of view, Max Verstappen also earns one more point, rising from tenth to ninth place. However, the balance for the Dutch driver is negative. The promotion of Hamilton to second position in fact plunges the Red Bull standard bearer to -8 in the general classification. Finally, Kimi Raikkonen enters the points area with Alfa Romeo. For the team from Hinwil this is the third world championship point this season. Williams, however, accentuates the overtaking in the constructors’ ranking. The sum of the points of Latifi and Russell in fact goes from six (eighth and ninth place) to ten (seventh and eighth place).
