On Thursday, the team announced that Aston Martin pulls out its appeal against the disqualification of Sebastian Vettel from the Hungarian GP.
Vettel completed runner-up on the Hungarian circuit, behind the champion Esteban Ocon and ahead of the champion leader Lewis Hamilton. However, according to technical regulations, he was disqualified when the FIA was not able to extract the required 1.0-liter fuel sample from his car after the race.
The team instantly declared their purpose to appeal and seek "right of review" in an attempt to reverse this decision and put back Vettel.
On Monday, after listening to the testimony of team members, including owner Otmar Szafnauer, the tournament organizing committee rejected the review request and ruled that the fact that the fuel pump malfunctioned was caused by the lack of fuel was not related to the original decision.
After the butler’s decision, Aston Martin stated that they will “consider our position on the complete appeal process now”, which is separate from the right to review the request.
However, on Thursday morning, they exposed that they would no longer seek appeals.
A statement from the team said: "Considering our position and taking note of the FIA administrator’s ruling that there is clear new evidence of a fuel system failure, we still withdrew the appeal because we believe that the benefits of doing so outweigh it was heard."
