Sebastian Vettel is set to get a grid drop penalty for the United States Grand Prix as Aston Martin changed his engine.
- Drivers are allowed to use three internal combustion engines per season, but many of them have already exceeded the limit, resulting in penalties.
- Vettel knew he would get an engine change for the United States Grand Prix and was expecting a rough weekend.
What he said:
- “I think we are heading into, let’s say, a difficult weekend. We are changing the engine and therefore we will have a penalty.”
- “We will see what we can do from where we start, and nevertheless, looking forward. I think we can be strong here. How strong? We will see.”
