Renault confirm Hulkenberg's Austria grid penalty

Renault confirm Hulkenberg's Austria grid penalty

Renault have confirmed that Nico Hulkenberg will serve a five-place grid penalty at the Austrian Grand Prix, as he has been fitted with a new Internal Combustion Engine (ICE).

Hulkenberg's team-mate Daniel Ricciardo took the upgraded engine at Paul Ricard last week, but the German was not given it as Renault wanted to avoid a grid drop in their home race.

Hulkenberg finished eighth in France, gaining a place post-race after Ricciardo was penalised for off-track passes on Lando Norris and Kimi Raikkonen, dropping from seventh to 11th.

The Red Bull Ring also sees Alexander Albon and Carlos Sainz take grid penalties for entirely new power units, they will both drop t the bac of the grid.

However, Hulkenberg's sanction – for using his fifth ICE of 2019 – is less severe, as he will not take additional parts.
