Another Verstappen penalty possible at Sochi says Marko

Red Bull is yet to decide if Max Verstappen will need to take a grid penalty this weekend at Sochi. “We are limited on the engine side,” team official Dr Helmut Marko told RTL. “We have to replace the engine somewhere in the coming races, because of the damage to the Silverstone engine,” he explained. “We will wait for qualifying, we’ll wait for the weather, and then we’ll make a decision,” said Marko. The 78-year-old admits that Sochi might be a good venue for the inevitable engine penalty. As for the three-place penalty for the Hamilton clash, Marko said Red Bull “accepts” the stewards’ decision.
