Russell, Ocon and Gasly penalized on the grid

This time, the race management took action! While the FIA ​​expressly asked drivers to no longer slow down in the pit lane, most of them once again moved the phenomenon by allowing gaps to create at the end of the pitlane. Three of them were pinned down by race management, and received a two-place grid penalty.

Winner last year, George Russell was penalized for slowing down too much and for not moving sufficiently to the left of the pit lane exit, preventing his pursuers from overtaking him. Same reason given for the two French pilots. Consequently, the Briton will start 8th, and the French duo will start 14th and 15th during the Grand Prix on Sunday (18 p.m.). This Saturday will take place the sprint day with the sprint shootout at 15 p.m., before the sprint race at 19:30 p.m.
