Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz will start the Turkish Grand Prix LAST after having his engine changed – just like team-mate Charles Leclerc did in Russia… as Mercedes also admit Lewis Hamilton could get a new power unit too

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz will start from the back of the grid in this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix as a result of penalties for exceeding his engine allocation, the Italian team said on Wednesday. Ferrari team-mate Charles Leclerc started at the back for the previous race in Russia for the same reason. Sainz could be joined on the back row by seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, who could also have his engine changed for this weekend’s race. Last time out, Verstappen used his fourth engine in the build-up to the race in Russia but managed to fight from the back to finish second, keeping Hamilton’s advantage to a minimum.
