According to, Max Verstappen will get a Power Unit change which will result in a penalty for the Russian Grand Prix.

Why it matters: Red Bull was uncertain on whether to change Verstappen’s Power Unit for the Russian Grand Prix or not.


  • Verstappen won’t be the only driver receiving a Power Unit change for this Grand Prix, with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc also in the same situation
  • This PU change means the Dutch driver will have to start the Grand Prix from the back of the field.
