Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz ahead of the Italian GP

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz now heading towards Monza GP, thy have had Italian food challenge before the weekend.

Max Verstappen has become the latest Formula 1 driver to be slapped with a grid penalty for the Italian Grand Prix.

The World Championship leader will incur a five-place grid drop for taking a new Internal Combustion Engine at Monza and not a back of the grid one as he got in Belgium.

As the Red Bull driver is only taking the new ICE, he will not suffer any further penalties.

The likes of Lewis Hamilton, Carlos Sainz Jr and Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez will drop to the rear for taking new power units overall – in Hamilton’s case it being the legacy of his first lap collision with Fernando Alonso at Spa.
