Nicholas Latifi will be starting the Russian GP from the back of the grid after taking a new power unit.


  • Latifi is the third driver this weekend to take a new power unit after championship leader Max Verstappen and Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc.
  • A pneumatic problem forced Williams to replace the engine on Latifi’s car.

What they had to say:

  • “Nicky chooses not to set a time in Q2. After discovering a pneumatic problem overnight, the team opted to take a fresh power unit and he will therefore start at the back of the grid tomorrow,” Williams’ statement reads.
