FIA sets date for Aston Martin's appeal

NEWS STORY
07/08/2021

Aston Martin's right to review following its disqualification from the Hungarian Grand Prix will take place on Monday 9 August, the first day of the sport's official summer shut-down.

On Thursday, the British team confirmed its intention to appeal its disqualification by lodging the right to review, claiming that it had "significant new evidence" to put before the Hungaroring stewards who will meet virtually.

Monday's hearing will see the stewards decide whether the new evidence is enough to warrant a review, their decision based on whether the new evidence is significant and relevant.

Should they agree a new hearing will be heard to look at the case.

It's understood that Aston Martin's appeal includes the need to install a new lift pump as the existing one is thought to be broken and thereby unable to provide the mandatory 1 litre of fuel.

"Appeal lost, should this be a team penalty ( a large fine) rather than disqualification."

"I don't know if it's true, but on another site, I read that the first check, weighing the car, did not show anything abnormal. If it is true, it could be an indication that, in this case, they might speak the truth. Time will tell."

"That's interesting? Was it broken before the race ended..was it broken when looking for the 'litre' or did it get broken after they spent three hours looking for the sample? Three hours spent by the best engineers in the world of F1 racing and they come up with this now? Now I'll take my sceptics' hat off until the next episode."

"'Lift Pump broken' could be a rather weak arguing point, but I wish AM luck with it."
