Lando Norris was left bitterly disappointed after what looked to be a solid qualifying performance in Qatar was marred by a costly error.
Norris and his McLaren team-mate Piastri looked set to be starting Sunday's race in second and fourth respectively before penalties imposed by the stewards saw them knocked down the grid order.
In Q3, the British driver's two fastest laps secured him a place on the front row alongside Red Bull's Max Verstappen on pole. However, on both occasions, Norris exceeded track limits, leading the stewards to delete his lap times.
Consequently, Norris will start the Qatar Grand Prix from 10th, the furthest back he's started a race since the Miami Grand Prix.
