Yuki Tsunoda (JPN) AlphaTauri AT03. Belgian Grand Prix, Friday 26th August 2022. Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.
AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda is set to start Formula 1’s Belgian Grand Prix from the pit lane after taking a fresh power unit.
Tsunoda was due to start from 13th place on the grid, following a raft of penalties elsewhere, having originally qualified in 19th spot.
However it was announced on Sunday morning that Tsunoda has taken fresh power unit components, and a new exhaust, and this was not undertaken with prior approval from the FIA.
As a consequence Tsunoda has to start the grand prix from the pit lane.
It will promote every driver originally behind him on the grid one position each.
