Maserati one-two at Hungaroring

At the end of the technical checks, the FIA’s technical officer, in line with Article 258.5.3.2 Appendix J, decided to disqualify car No.14 – the Saleen S7 that won today’s race. The exclusion of Wendlinger/Sharp means that first place now goes to the Maserati MC12 driven by Bertolini/Bartels and second to the MC12 crewed by Pier Guidi/Bobbi.

K Plus K Motorsports have the right to appeal against the decision.
