Back of the Hungary GP grid for Daniel Ricciardo

Date published: August 4 2019

Daniel Ricciardo will start the Hungarian Grand Prix from dead last after Renault opted for a tactical engine change.

Ricciardo suffered a shock early exit during Q1 at the Hungaroring and was already down in the rather lowly position of P18 on ┬áSunday’s grid.

As a result, Renault have added a new engine, MGU-K, MGU-H, turbocharger, control electronics and energy store to his pool for the rest of the season at the cost of just two grid places.

Ricciardo’s drop to the very back promotes Lance Stroll to P18 and Robert Kubica to P19.

The only other grid penalty ahead of the race is a three-place grid drop for Antonio Giovinazzi after the stewards found him guilty of blocking another car in Q1. He moves from P14 to P17.
