The dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull), leader of the current championship of F1, the Russian Grand Prix this weekend from the bottom of the pack after his team's decision to change various components of your car's power unit.
Verstappen, what I already had a penalty of three places on the grid for his responsibility in the incident he starred in with the Englishman Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) in the past Italian GP, you will receive a series of penalties for each new component, something that will inevitably make you start from the last positions.
As revealed by Red Bull, the new parts that will mount the Honda power unit include a new turbo, new MGU-H and MGU-K and new electronics. All these pieces receive a penalty for their change. The car will also mount a new exhaust, whose change is allowed without penalty.
In a similar position is the Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), who has also taken new elements of the power unit for this weekend. That includes a new spec hybrid system.
Having Verstappen starting from the bottom will benefit Hamilton, who comes into this race five points behind the Dutchman. The thing is Sochi is a circuit where Mercedes remains undefeated since 2014 and in which the British himself won four times.
