After the race in Hungary, both Esteban Ocon and Sebastian Vettel came to a stop on the track. In the case of Ocon because he forgot that he had to enter the pits after the run-out lap. He did not receive a penalty for this. Sebastian Vettel however is facing a penalty, as he was stranded with an empty tank.

This could have major consequences. The regulations state that the cars must have at least one litre of fuel in the tank at the end of the race. This is sufficient for the FIA to analyse them properly. From Vettel’s car they could only get 0,3 litre out of the tank.

Normally an infringement of this rule leads to disqualification. A representative of Aston Martin had to report to the race control at 20:20. If Vettel is indeed disqualified, it would mean that both Hamilton and Verstappen move up a place. However, Hamilton would gain three points and Verstappen just one.
