Date published: October 22 2017

F1 has done it again with six drivers penalised on the starting grid for the United States GP with Brendon Hartley P19 on debut and Sauber emerging as the big winners.

Max Verstappen, Nico Hulkenberg, Brendon Hartley and Stoffel Vandoorne all have power unit element penalties ranging from 15 to 30 places.

All four are in the bottom half of the grid along with Lance Stroll and Kevin Magnussen, who were hit with three-place penalties for impeding other drivers in qualifying.

The penalties are great news for Sauber. Despite qualifying near the back of the grid, Marcus Ericsson will start P13 with Pascal Wehrlein in 15th place.
