Apparently Lewis is still suffering from the long term effects of Covid.

Shit. I was really worried about him on the podium. Thought he was going to pass out any second.

Vettel likely to be disqualified as there was too little fuel in his car after the race. Only 0,3 liter could be extracted.

Utter shite rule as well.

Why? They only have to provide 1 litre sample for the test, which is done in order to avoid teams messing about with illegal fuel composition. Fair enough, I'd say.

Why is that a thing? I don't understand the reasoning...

Just saw this. 

That is still a weird thing...couldn't they just control and check that BEFORE a race?

I guess they could, but then what stops the team from adding something into the fuel after the check?

A disqualification is harsh for the driver though.

Video cameras, having it under lock and key that only an official can open...

Agree, as its the mistake of the team, but technical regulations are technical regulations. If you only punished the team with a fine, I think most teams would gladly mess about with the fuel and pay the fine if they can't provide a sample.

That's a bit too much, no? Also, would they be locking the fuel tank on the car and have an officer monitoring it all the time as well? I don't think the regulation needs changing. If anything, it also prevents cars running out of fuel and stopping in the middle of the track on the last laps of the race.

Vettel disqualified. Hamilton up to P2 and Sainz P3. Williams get 7th and 8th and Ricciardo ends up with a point.

Double whammy for Aston Martin as it also boosts both Alpha Tauri cars along with Alonso giving Alpine 37 points in total. The three teams were neck and neck going into the race.

How is not having enough fuel a shit rule xD?

I'm guessing you haven't read the other comments but I thought it was justified enough by saying 'it was harsh for the driver'. Vettel is totally blameless for fuel consumption. Literally out of his control in how that goes, he finishes 2nd, and has that totally stripped away from him.

Aston Martin intend to appeal, saying that calculations show there should still be 1.4l in the car, they are just not able to extract it - potentially due to a fuel pump failure.

Ocon's fault.

Hamilton up to P1!!

If they're out of fuel that's a huge fuck up from Aston Martin because there was enough time in that race where Vettel could have turned the fuel mix down and not lost any time behind Ocon. This just doesn't happen so I'm inclined to believe that there was in fact enough fuel in the car. I don't know what will happen or whether there's any precedent but I imagine the team have at least some grounds to appeal the penalty.

No - Ocon did an extra victory lap which will be result in some rule be broken and thus vaulting Hamilton to P1. 😆

Fuel mixes can't be changed mid-race anymore.

Okay, they could have told him to lift and coast instead for a few laps. The idea of them actually being below the required fuel load seems bizarre.
