More grid penalties on the Sunday morning; Haas on it's way to race control

It's only the second race of this short season, but there already are a lot of grid penalties prior to the Styrian Grand Prix. Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc received theirs because of violations of the sporting regulations, now the technical regulations are also at fault.

Antonio Giovinazzi replaced a gearbox and that results in three places grid penalty. During his slide during qualifying on Saturday he came into contact with tyre wall and was unable to limp back to the pits. Although it seemed a soft touch, it certainly did some damage.

Haas has to report to the race control

In the meantime, the team of Haas has to report to the competition management for a violation of the parc fermé rules. Last night after qualifying, Romain Grosjean's car was modified, which would mean he would have to start from the pit lane today.

By the way, for both drivers their penalty for the result will make little difference. Grosjean qualified last and Giovinazzi just one place ahead of the Frenchman. This is probably also the reason why the teams have chosen to take a penalty.
