Will Vandoorne take grid penalty for Austin F1 Race?

McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne will require a 5-place grid penalty for that US. Grand Prix after Honda made a decision to fit a brand new F1 car engine.

McLaren-Honda had wished to prevent penalties with this weekend’s race at Austin, because the outfit feels the united states GP represents its best possibility of a powerful increase the risk for remaining races.


Speculate of high mileage on Vandoorne’s ICE, Honda has elected to alter the system, which is his eighth of year, triggering a 5-place penalty.

Honda continues to be pushing up with development and understands the car engine has small modifications to enhance performance.

Japan manufacturer has made the decision to not change the other components to minimise the penalty for that Belgian.

Vandoorne may have the brand new unit from first practice on Friday at Austin, with teammate Fernando Alonso running exactly the same engine he used in the last race at Japan.
