Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz will start the Turkish Grand Prix from the back of the grid as his team confirmed he’ll get a new Power Unit.


  • Ferrari has developed a new Power Unit with a new hybrid system – the same Charles Leclerc got during the Russian Grand Prix weekend.
  • Because of the implementation, Sainz will start the Turkish Grand Prix from the back.

The statement:

  • “As was the case for Charles Leclerc in Russia, in Turkey Carlos Sainz will take a completely new power unit fitted with the new hybrid system. Therefore he will start from the back of the grid with the aim of climbing up the order to try and score some points.”
