Carlos Sainz is taking a 10 place grid penalty into this event for his 3rd control electronics for the season. Rumour is that Ferrari may take additional components forcing him to a rear of grid start.

Ferrari have loaded up Carlos Sainz with multiple engine components and will start at the rear of grid.
Kevin Magnussen and his Haas have also multiple engine components and will also go to the rear of grid.

Mick Schumacher had his fast time deleted in Q1 for track infringements at turn 3. It was good enough for the top 10.
Both Carlos Sainz and Kevin Magnussen made Q3 but didn't set a time. They will be starting at the rear of grid due to component penalties.

What a great finish to the race. George Russell lulled Sergio Perez by dropping back and then timing his run back up to coincide with the end of Virtual Safety Car. Perez saw Russell at the last minute but lit up his rear tyres and George Russell to the advantage. So wise beyond his years.
