It was already not a great starting position for the Brazilian Grand Prix for Yuki Tsunoda Starting the race from 15th place makes it difficult for Yuki Tsunoda to go home with some points. Unfortunately for the Japanese, the task will be even tougher on Sunday.

His team AlphaTauri replaced parts on Tsunoda's car under parc fermé. This is not allowed, so there will be a penalty. Tsunoda has to start the Grand Prix from the pit lane, AlphaTauri reported via Twitter.

Pierre Gasly will start tenth on Sunday. So probably the team needs the Frenchman to collect some points. The good points, that is, not the penalty points. If Gasly picks up two more penalty points, he will be suspended for one Grand Prix. On Saturday, he escaped that fate. Although Gasly had to report to the stewards, he did not receive a penalty.
