As expected, a number of drivers have incurred engine penalties ahead of this weekend's race.

At McLaren, Fernando Alonso has used a ninth Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), a breach of Article 28.4 (a) of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations, and therefore incurs a 10-plance penalty.

Teammate Jenson Button has also used a ninth ICE and therefore drops 10 places also.

At Red Bull, Daniel Ricciardo drops 25 places, which comprises 10 positions for a 6th ICE, 5 for a 5th Turbocharger, 5 for a 5th MGU-H and 5 for a 5th MGU-K.

Teammate Daniil Kvyat drops 15 positions, 10 positions for a 6th ICE and 5 for a 5th Turbocharger.

Finally, Carlos Sainz, at Toro Rosso, drops 10 positions for using a 5th ICE.

It is thought that Max Verstappen will also be changing his engine and will therefore also incur a penatly.
