They have enough sensors to know how low it is and they could of slowed down but they just tried too hard to catch Ocon and then make sure they finished ahead of LH, which ironically means they've been disqualified.They're appealing it but the FIA apparently gave them several opportunities to pump the required amount of fuel out of the car and all they could produce was 0.3L. It's a pretty black and white rule - if you can't produce 1L then you get sanctioned.
Probably have to runner it at lower power levels to make it last.Not only that, but there is a strong possibility that Verstappen is looking at grid penalties later in the year. Honda had hoped that the engine in his car in the Silverstone crash would be salvageable. They checked it in Japan between the two races and ran it on the first two days in Hungary, but then discovered a crack and had to change it for the race.
The result is Verstappen is now on his third and final permitted engine, and it won't be easy to eke out the remaining engine miles they have for however many races remain in this Covid-affected season without taking a fourth.
So what penalty are they giving?View: https://mobile.twitter.com/JennieGow/status/1437094915654225920?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet
Sort of followed my own view of the incident.
