Formula 1 | Latifi penalized on the grid after changing gear


Nicholas Latifi to be fined five grid places at Dutch Grand Prix for gearbox change after damage suffered in his qualifying crash

Latifi exited at Turn 8 in Q2, ending the session that had already been interrupted by a red flag following an outing by Williams teammate George Russell.

Although Russell narrowly escaped heavy damage, Latifi suffered a shock to him at 38G.

Williams changed the gearbox in Latifi’s car. This change means that the Canadian will receive a penalty of five grid places.

Latifi qualified 14th and will therefore fall to 19th place after the application of the penalty. It should go up one place if Red Bull changes the maximum of Sergio Perez’s « engine » elements this morning.
