The revised Austrian GP grid

A five-place grid drop for Lewis Hamilton and a pit lane start for Pascal Wehrlein are the two changes to Sunday’s Austrian GP grid.

Hamilton qualified P3 for the 71-lap Austrian GP but an unscheduled gearbox change meant he was hit with an automatic five-place penalty.

He will line up eighth.

As for Wehrlein, his Sauber needed a new engine after qualifying. As such he’ll be starting from the pit lane.
