Carlos Sainz and Kevin Magnussen have received new power unit components and will start the French Grand Prix from the back of the grid.

Sainz received a 10-place grid penalty yesterday as he had exceeded the limit of used control electronics this season. During FP3, it was confirmed that the Spaniard got new internal combustion engine, turbocharger, MGU-H, and MGU-K. The Spaniard will start Sunday’s race from the rear as a result.

Magnussen got the same elements and will join Sainz on the last row of the starting grid on Sunday. A driver who finishes higher in qualifying will have a better starting position for the race.

Sainz, Magnussen, and Charles Leclerc also had new exhaust systems, but stayed within the limit.
