Perez and Magnussen hit with back-of-the-grid start penalties for Abu Dhabi GP

Perez and Magnussen hit with back-of-the-grid start penalties for Abu Dhabi GP

Sergio Perez and Kevin Magnussen sign off the Formula 1 season this weekend with grid penalties.

Just a week after his first F1 victory at the 190th attempt, Perez will start at the back-of-the-grid for the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix along with Magnussen.

Perez's Racing Point requires a new internal combustion engine, traction control and MGU-H, all the fourth of the season when only three are allowed.

Magnussen's Haas, meanwhile, is in need of a new control electronics and energy store, both the third of the season when the regulations permit the use of just two during a campaign.

Perez departs Racing Point after Sunday's event as the team have recruited four-time champion Sebastian Vettel to help usher in its rebranding as Aston Martin from next year.

The 30-year-old Mexican is still anxiously waiting to see if Red Bull will sign him as team-mate to Max Verstappen for 2021 over current driver Alex Albon.

Magnussen, meanwhile, is poised for a new career in sportscars, with the Dane set to enter the 24 Hours of Daytona at the end of next month.
