  • Tsunoda receives his 5th reprimand of the season for "loosened seatbelt" at Zandvoort last week and so faces a 10 place grid drop this week. Another three-place drop has been added, along with two penalty points, after failing to slow for yellow flags in FP2. He will start at the back of the grid along with Hamilton and Sainz.
