Daniel Ricciardo set for engine penalties

Daniel Ricciardo is set to start the German Grand Prix from the back of the grid after the FIA confirmed he has taken new engine parts.

The Red Bull driver arrived at the Hockenheimring stating that he expects to take new parts as Red Bull feel this track is one where he can overtake.

As such the FIA confirmed on Friday that Ricciardo has a new MGU-K, energy store and control electronics.

That brings his penalty tally up to 20 places.

Red Bull have yet to decide whether the Aussie will also take a new power unit, MGU-H or turbo, all of which are on the bubble for penalties.

Meanwhile both Ferraris are running new MGU-Ks and ERS, moving them onto their second for both elements.
