Aston Martin have withdrawn their appeal against Sebastian Vettel's disqualification from the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The German was stripped of second place in the 1 August race following a fuel infringement, with stewards unable to take the required litre sample from the car of the four-time world champion.

His Aston Martin team subsequently appealed while also seeking a 'right of review’ which the FIA dismissed on Monday and it has now resulted in a line being drawn on the matter.

"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having noted the FIA stewards’ verdict that there was clear new evidence of a fuel system failure, we have nonetheless withdrawn our appeal on the basis that we believe doing so outweighs the benefits of it being heard," a statement from Aston Martin read.

It means Lewis Hamilton’s championship advantage over Max Verstappen remains at eight points, with the British driver promoted from third to runner-up after Vettel’s disqualification following a chaotic race.
