Turkish Grand Prix: Carlos Sainz to start from back of grid

Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz will start this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix from the back of the grid as a result of an engine-related penalty. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton is also expected to face a similar engine penalty before the end of the season, but it is not yet known at which race. When it is taken, Hamilton will also have to start from the back of the grid. There is a possibility this, too, could be in Turkey this weekend. Hamilton’s title rival Max Verstappen had to start from the back of the grid in Russia because of his own engine penalty. Verstappen’s Red Bull will race in a one-off livery this weekend as a tribute to engine partner Honda.
