Lando Norris will start the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series race at Monaco from the back of the grid after being excluded from qualifying following a technical infringement on his Josef Kaufmann Racing machine.

The British driver had set a time of 1:31.221, which was good enough for pole position on Saturday morning, but his efforts ultimately counted for nothing as the stewards deleted his times.

Norris’ demotion, coupled with a two-place grid penalty carried over from Motorland Aragon for Ferdinand Habsburg, will allow Tech 1 Racing’s Sacha Fenestraz to start the Monaco race from the front of the grid, with his time of 1:31.463 beating Max Defourny by 0.159 seconds.

Defourny, the winner of the season opening race of the season at Motorland Aragon, will start on the front row for R-ace GP aiming to leave Monaco back on top of the championship standings, with the Belgian currently trailing the penalised Norris by 13 points.
