Verstappen and Perez take new power units as Gasly hit with grid penalties

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will start the Hungarian Grand Prix with new power units while Pierre Gasly has been hit with a pitlane start.

Red Bull duo Verstappen and Perez endured a tricky qualifying, with the reigning F1 champion encountering a PU problem in Q3 that means he will start 10th, while his team-mate failed to make it out of Q2.

The team has taken the decision to introduce a new system into the pool, with both Verstappen and Perez receiving the third and final internal combustion engine, MGU-H, MGU-K and turbocharger.

A further change of any of those components at a race after the summer break will lead to grid penalties.

As for AlphaTauri driver Gasly, his car has also taken on a new engine, MGU-H, MGU-K, turbocharger, energy store and control electronics unit.

The FIA has confirmed that as all the components were changed without the approval of the FIA technical delegate, Gasly, who qualified a miserable 19th, will now start the race from the pitlane.
