Two drivers will start from the pit lane for the 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix as Haas's Nico Hulkenberg is the latest to join the list.

Esteban Ocon's pit lane start was confirmed on Saturday after Alpine made suspension set-up changes to his car with the field in parc ferme conditions.

Haas have now followed suit with Hulkenberg, who finished 15th in Saturday's Sprint but qualified 17th for Sunday's Grand Prix (in a new-for-2023 format that saw qualifying for the Grand Prix moved to Friday).

The team have changed the set-up on the German driver's suspension, thus putting him behind Ocon in the pit lane queue when the lights go out.

Charles Leclerc took pole position for the Grand Prix before finishing second in Saturday's Sprint. The Ferrari driver leads the Red Bulls off the line at 1500 local time.
