Aston Martin Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo is set to start from last place on the grid this weekend after the FIA confirmed that the Australian will be changing a number of parts on his power unit ahead of the German Grand Prix.
During first practice at Hockenheim the FIA put out a press release confirming the changes across the grid with Ricciardo taking a new MGU-K, Enegy Store, and Control Electronics.
The changes put the Red Bull driver over his allowance for the season and while the penalty has yet to be confirmed, it will most likely lead to him starting from the back of the grid.
Yesterday Ricciardo acknowledged that the penalties were looming as the team look to boost their chances in Hungary next weekend and in to the remainder of the season.
While the penalties will be a dispointment for Ricciardo, it will be interesting to see his progress as he makes his way through the field on Sunday.
Elsewhere on the grid Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Romain Grosjean, Kevin Magnussen, Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc all take a change of MGU-K. Vettel, Räikkönen and Max Verstappen also take a new Energy Store, none of these changes will affect grid positions for the drivers as they remain in their alocated allowance.
