Vettel was excluded from the final race results after Aston Martin couldn’t give the FIA an adequate fuel sample after the race.

The FIA could only extract 0.3 litres of fuel from Vettel’s car, even though Aston Martin believed there was 1.74 litres still in the car.

As a result, the Silverstone-based outfit requested a right of review after finding new evidence - a fuel cell failure was the reason for the team being unable to provide an adequate fuel sample.

Aston Martin has since confirmed it has withdrawn its appeal over Vettel’s DSQ, thus avoiding a case with the FIA International Court of Appeal.

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having noted the FIA stewards’ verdict that there was clear new evidence of a fuel system failure, we have nonetheless withdrawn our appeal on the basis that we believe doing so outweighs the benefits of it being heard.”

Team boss Otmar Szafnauer added: “Sebastian drove brilliantly in Hungary and we are pleased to have been given the opportunity to show significant new evidence that we discovered since the race.

“We felt that the evidence we presented was relevant and demonstrated to the FIA that he should have been reinstated following his disqualification.

“Unfortunately, the FIA took a different view and, despite the fact that the accuracy of our new evidence was not contested, Sebastian’s disqualification has been upheld on the basis that the new evidence was not deemed 'relevant'.”

Aston Martin’s failure to score in Hungary leaves it seventh in the constructors’ championship, 20 points behind AlphaTauri in sixth.
