Second-placed Sebastian Vettel had to leave his Aston Martin on the track after the Hungarian F1 race.
The reason quickly became clear: the car had run out of fuel.
Normally, there is still some lump at the bottom of the tank, but in Vettel's case, the flow was really exhausted.
This could further lead to Vettel losing his second place in the race won by Esteban Ocon.

According to the rules of the sport, competitors must ensure that 1.0 liters of fuel can be taken at any time during the race event.
Only 300 milliliters of fuel was extracted from the Aston Martin.
Vettel's case is pending before Jo Bauer, Fia's technical delegate of the International Automobile Federation, and the race jury.
The representative of Aston Martin was heard by the jury at about 9.20 pm Finnish time.
If Vettel is rejected, Mercedes Lewis Hamilton will rise second and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz third.

The rejection would also affect the championship battle, with Hamilton getting 18 points instead of the original 15 points and his challenger Max Verstappe getting two points instead of two.
In other words, Hamilton’s World Cup lead would stretch by two points, and that too would be a bit in a peak season.
One of the benefits would be Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen.
The Finn would rise to the last points and at the same time double his points balance for the season from one to two.
