Valtteri Bottas will start Sunday’s Russian GP from the back of the grid after another engine change.

Why it matters: It is the second time in two race weekends that the Finn will start in the rear due to power unit change.


  • Bottas is the fourth driver to have a new power unit this weekend after Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen, and Nicholas Latifi.
  • The decision has likely been made in order to impede Verstappen.
