Hello j turner and welcome to our forums.

Under the current 2 race engine rules, if a car fails to finish the race (be it a mechanical failure or an accident), the team is entitled to change the engine on that car without penalty for the next race.

In Michael's case, his engine was on its second race anyway and its failure doesn't result in a penalty for Michael at the next event.
