Competitors must ensure that 1.0 litre sample of fuel may be taken from the car at any time during the event. Only 0.3 litres were able to be taken from Vettel's Aston Martin after Sunday's race.
With Vettel's disqualification, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton moves into second place with Ferrari Carlos Sainz taking third.
