Max Verstappen will not start the Italian Grand Prix from the first position on the grid this Sunday at Monza.
Penalties could be plentiful this weekend at Monza, and the starting grid should be very different from the qualifying decision!
Red Bull Racing has confirmed it has fitted Max Verstappen’s single seater with a new internal combustion engine for this final Euro Grand Prix of the season. This will result in a five-place grid penalty for the championship leader.
So Verstappen adds his name to the long list of drivers already confirmed on the grid for the Italian Grand Prix, which includes several big guns who are usually podium contenders such as Lewis Hamilton, Carlos Sainz and Sergio Pérez.
