Sainz was eliminated in Q2 after getting it wrong through the final chicane and making contact with the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve’s infamous ‘Wall of Champions’.
With his previous gearbox having not completed the six consecutive events required by the regulations, the resulting penalty means he is expected to drop from 15th to 20th on the final Montreal grid.
Meanwhile, Kevin Magnussen is expected to start the race from the pit lane after Renault had his car re-scrutineered this morning following the Dane’s FP3 crash which prevented him participating in qualifying.
