Haas's Kevin Magnussen has taken a five-place grid penalty for the 2022 Mexico City Grand Prix after Pietro Fittipaldi's FP1 stoppage.

The Danish driver has taken his sixth of three allocated internal combustion engines after reserve driver Fittipaldi – who stood in for him in FP1 – stopped in the opening Friday practice session with a reported MGU-K issue.

Magnussen will therefore drop five places on the grid at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

Aston Martin's Lance Stroll will also drop three places after his collision with Fernando Alonso in the United States, while it is unclear whether Charles Leclerc will face a penalty after his FP2 crash on Friday afternoon in Mexico City.
