Russian Grand Prix: Red Bull and Toro Rosso teams hit with grid penalties

In Sochi, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon and Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly drop five places on the grid.
Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat will start at the back for his home race on Sunday.
Kvyat’s bigger penalty is because Honda is replacing five of the six constituent elements of his power-unit, the internal combustion engine, turbo, hybrid parts the MGU-K and MGU-H and console electronics.
The cars of Verstappen, Albon and Gasly are being fitted only with new internal combustion engines, because their history of engine changes this season is different.
